Amputee Coalition

In 1986, a small group of amputee support group leaders recognized the need for an organization dedicated to the needs of people with limb loss, their families and healthcare providers. Working entirely as volunteers, they laid the foundation for what the Amputee Coalition is today, the leading national non-profit organization that empowers individuals with limb loss through education, support and advocacy.

Certified Peer Visitor (CPV) Program

Amputee Coalition offers peer support in the form of support groups, hospital partnership programs, youth camp, and our Certified Peer Visitor program.
