What is a Chi Alpha Caregiver?

“CareGivers” are the Major Component of “UmatterXA” – Chi Alpha’s Member Care Network

Because you, Chi Alpha missionaries and workers, matter, we’ve created a network of trained “CareGivers” from among our Chi Alpha family who serve as volunteers in this effort to be there for you when you most need it.  Our efforts purpose is to nurture a culture of value for our missionaries, staff, and students that creates a clear pathway for getting the help we may need as laborers on the university campus mission field. This is not only to maintain healthy lives, but set a course for recovery when needs arise. 

Essentially, our purpose is to provide a fully confidential safe place of contact, care, and encouragement for when you just need someone to talk things through with or pray with you. (However, there are situations where reporting is necessary.)

A CareGiver is not trying to be a counseling therapist, or fix your problems is three easy steps.  Rather, he or she will be a friendly colleague ready to talk things through about whatever is troubling you, focus on moving forward, assess what options you might consider, look at available resources, and provide on-the-spot ministry as the Holy Spirit directs.

Our Chi Alpha CareGivers have been approved and appointed by the Chi Alpha area directors for their region.  CareGivers are simply Chi Alpha approved well-informed peers that are available to talk when you need someone to talk to. Whatever you are experiencing, they know about specific resources that are available to you, and can get you connected to the appropriate help should you desire. Our intention is for the information shared with the CareGiver to be held confidentially except as required by state or local laws. And of course, they are always ready to listen, pray, and serve you as the purveyors of hope they are meant to be.

Our Chi Alpha Nation is a family that must stand with one another through the highs and lows, wins and loses, whatever comes our way. We are networking our services in order to provide preventative interaction, as well as, personal and tangible support in life’s most trying times.

Help is only a call away!  Look over our Chi Alpha CareGivers Directory and locate someone to reach out to today.
