This is where the staff of the Reeve Foundation is sharing up-to-the-minute information and putting some context around the news affecting the spinal cord injury and paralysis community. Not to mention insight into what's going on here at the Foundation.
Feel free to comment and offer suggestions. We'll respond.
The Reeve Foundation teamed up with the Shepherd Center on Dec.17th to conduct a peer mentor training session in Atlanta, GA. We had 20 candidates some of which were already mentors at Shepherd.
The Reeve Foundation's Peer & Family Support Program (PFSP) is a national peer mentoring program. Our mission is to provide emotional support and information and resources to people living with paralysis, family members and caregivers. By sharing honest advice and real-world experiences with people seeking support, a peer mentor helps to improve the lives of others dealing with the many unique challenges faced by our community.
We teamed up with the Shepherd center to help expand peer to peer mentoring across the state of GA. Are you or do you know a person living with paralysis who is struggling? Maybe you are or know a mom and dad feeling scared and alone caring for a teenage son after a spinal cord injury in GA? If so please contact Steve Kenny, your regional coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The PFSP has over 250 peer mentors across the country. So if you are or know others that are living with paralysis, family members or are caregivers that are struggling please contact us www.ChristopherReeve.org/peer. The people that are the best equipped to help are the people that have been there themselves
