Support Groups

Volunteer-led support groups enable individuals with scleroderma to meet and exchange information with others who face similar challenges. Support Group leaders are trained with a comprehensive program developed with our partners at SPIN (Scleroderma Patient-centered Network). Support groups often feature speakers specializing in scleroderma or related topics.

The Lower Great Lakes chapter has support groups in Central Ohio, Cleveland, Dayton, Greater Cincinnati, Northeast Ohio, Toledo and Youngstown. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, our support groups are meeting virtually.

In addition to our local support groups, there are Foundation-affiliated support groups around the country. To access more information about any of our support groups, visit Find a Support Group and search based on your zip code and topics.
