Support Families Program

Claire’s Place Foundation has several families standing by as Support Families for newly diagnosed or isolated families looking for support.  If you are interested in becoming a support family or are in need of a family to speak with, please send an email to and we will respond with more information.

Our first Support Family – sisters living with cystic fibrosis

Families seeking assistance will be offered support and information on how to work through the treatment and care process by other parent volunteers. Over the next 5 years, these programs may expand to include actual activities brought to the hospital for children and families to participate in, tool kits and local support groups for families.




In an effort to support our community and the newly diagnosed, we have compiled the following list of valuable Community Resources:
