The Caring Network (CN) reflects the words of the Albany UU chalice lighting – “to sustain a vital and nurturing religious community.” The CN is a broad network of Albany UU members who provide encouragement and short-term support to Albany UU members who need assistance due to hospitalization, sickness, loss, or isolation, need assistance. Services typically include transportation to medical appointments, meals, and shopping during recovery, and friendly “check-ins” from Caring Network members. 

Please reach out to the Caring Network if you or someone you know in the congregation needs assistance. You can also request that your name be added to the Caring Network group email list by emailing
