How to Find Support

Whether you, a friend, or family member is facing amputation/limb loss, the Amputee Coalition offers several ways to find useful information, support and encouragement when you need it most.

Request a peer visit

Receiving support from someone who has successfully gone through a similar life event can be a turning point in the recovery process. The Amputee Coalition has trained over 1,000 volunteers with limb loss and their family members to meet with amputees/family in times of need. Peer visits take place everyday across the county, in person, on the phone, and via email. If you would like to request a visit from one of our certified peer visitors, please complete the request form and we will have someone contact you as soon as possible.
