Who We Are
Self-Care For Advocates is an organization by advocates for advocates. We know from our own experiences on the frontlines of social justice movements and crisis response teams that the cost of caring is high.
First formed in 2014, Self-Care For Advocates began as a small (but plucky), volunteer-run Facebook group dedicated to promoting self-care, sharing resources, and creating a community of support among helping professionals. Now, just over 7 years later, the Self-Care For Advocates group has grown into a worldwide movement with thousands of participating helping professionals in over 63 countries around the world.
In 2020, Self-Care For Advocates took the first step in formalizing as a nonprofit organization and began growing our programs and services.
