Our organization was founded at Duke University in 1980, relocated to Raleigh in 1985 through a generous grant from the Kate B. Reynolds Health Care Trust and moved to the Cameron Village area of Raleigh in 1989. In 1992, additional office space was acquired for a Family Resource Center which includes general information, family assistance materials and our lending library of books and videos. Recently, we relocated to 1305 Navaho Drive in Raleigh.
We are a tax-exempt 501(c) 3 nonprofit corporation (tax I.D.#56-1501117), governed by a Board of Directors (community leaders, health care professionals and family members - one third of our Board must be family members).
