AMPOWER: AMPUTEE SUPPORT GROUP AND RESOURCE CENTER

Our mission: To empower and strengthen those affected by amputation or limb difference through peer mentorship, education and community.

Peer support

Amputee Peer Support Group

Mentors are available to speak face-to-face, over the phone, via skype or facetime, through e-mail or through our private, password-protected online web community.
