History & Purpose

Powerful Connections Since 1997

For more than two decades, CaringBridge has mobilized the power of community for help, hope and healing. In that time, we’ve become a nonprofit and expanded our reach to help even more patients and family caregivers make private, personal connections when they need them most.

Who We are

How We Show Up

A health journey of any kind—diagnosis, injury, illness, pregnancy complications—is difficult to endure alone. Too often, patients and family caregivers feel isolated at a time when support matters most. In these moments, CaringBridge unlocks the power of community. Because healing often happens with help from family, friends and faith … and the ability to keep moving ahead.

What we do

CaringBridge Mobilizes Communities to Support Healing

As a global nonprofit social network, we help people connect with family and friends during a health journey. We’re a free, advertising-free platform with simple tools for patients and family caregivers to share health updates, and for their communities to offer support and encouragement.
