Family caregivers are often a forgotten role in trauma and recovery situations. We must not only remain strong, healthy, and supportive for our loved ones; we must continue to grow and thrive in our own lives, pursuing our own dreams and goals. In offering these programs, The Arch Foundation's goal is to provide opportunities for connection and sharing with others, replenishing energy, while offering resources so that you can go back to your loved ones refreshed and healthy.
The Arch Foundation provides respite care funds for caregivers who need help with their loved ones during the outings or activities.

Wellness & Education
“Thank you so much for tonight. I really appreciate the flowers and the coffee card. I cannot thank you enough for what you do. I needed that support tonight. It came just in time.
I’m glad to be a part of this group of amazing caregivers. Thank you, again” .~ Kristen Litteer
Small gestures might seem insignificant, but we promise...it's not. The Arch Foundation has launched a project to bring a little light through flowers and gift cards to people whose loved ones have been admitted to Craig Hospital in Englewood, Colorado.
Heather Zoccali, founder of The Arch Foundation, and her family experienced a 2-month stay at Craig Hospital after an injury to her eldest son. She knows first-hand how seemingly small gestures can make a real difference in someone’s day as they begin to navigate this major life transition.
This program is really the core idea in what we hope to accomplish - providing an opportunity for you to tap into a vast network of support for caregivers of people who have suffered an SCI and/or TBI.
The program includes:
· Providing locally grown bouquets and gift cards to caregivers at Craig Hospital once a month to add some thoughtfulness to their day.
· Providing massages and temporary gym memberships at Craig hospital for Caregivers to begin establishing healthy self-care habits and find moments for stress relief.
· Providing resources and education to caregivers and their family for managing the life of a loved-one with SCI and TBI to help research seem less daunting and overwhelming.
Kids & Sibs - LAUNCHING IN MAY 2019!
The children and siblings of people with diverse abilities are often caregivers too! We want to honor them and provide a break for fun, support, love, and a moment dedicated just for them. We are creating a monthly Kids & Sibs program to provide such support.
Kids & Sibs is designed for youth in Middle & High School. TAF will have monthly outings and events to allow the light to shine on these young family caregivers.
Respite care funds are available for caregivers who need help with their loved ones during the outings or activities. Please be sure to fill out our form below for help with this resource.
It's so hard to take a break, isn't it? But you need to take time for yourself so you can maintain your own health and wellness. The Arch Foundation provides monthly outings and events for caregivers designed to bring enrichment and build community. Our activities range from non-contact boxing to local art classes. We hope to give individuals essential breaks to recharge both physically and emotionally, allowing them to continue to bring their best selves forward each day.
