Mission: Transplant Community Alliance bridges relationships with transplant organizations and offers support through programs to enhance and protect the quality of life for transplant recipients, caregivers and their families.

We want to end the wait for a transplant by asking people to register as an organ, eye and tissue donor at DonateLifeAZ.org/TCA.

Support Group Facilitator: The Support Group Facilitator will host weekly meetings and foster an environment of caring, safety and support during the meeting. Meetings are held online via zoom until about August/September 2021, at which time we will make an assessment together whether to have in-person meetings.

Support groups are weekly on Thursday from 7-8:30pm. Groups are mainly peer-led, and the Facilitator job is to moderate emotions and conversations, provide support or be conversation-starters. Group attendees experience isolation and depression and are looking for connection, have anxiety about medical procedures or transplant, or just want to talk about what their meds are doing to them! Support groups occasionally have guest speakers or theme nights.

Job Duties (approx 3-4 hours weekly):

  • Make contact with regular support group attendees by email or phone each week prior to meeting,
  • prepare for the meetings,
  • attend, take attendance and moderate meetings,
  • report monthly to ED.

Mission Statement

Transplant Community Alliance offers resources at no cost to transplant recipients and their families. Transplant Community Alliance has been supporting the Arizona transplant community for over 28 years. Our support services include financial assistance, social and psychological support, education, transplantation advocacy and encouragement for recipients to live healthy, active lifestyles. We provide an opportunity to find answers and comfort with people that are intimately familiar with living with a transplant.

Description

Our purpose is to provide economic, educational, social, and psychological assistance to be instrumental in helping to achieve successful outcomes for patients receiving organ transplants, from the time they are placed on the list to their return to mainstream life. We also advocate for the urgent need to register Arizonans as organ and tissue donors.Social Support - We create and foster a spirit of association and camaraderie among the members of this society, host a weekly social support group for recipients, their families or caregivers, and facilitate relevant continuing education for the transplant community. Financial Support - We help fund housing and transportation needs associated with transplantation to those needing financial assistance, bridge financial gaps related to prescribed medications and copays, and offer resources and knowledge of insurance and reimbursement claims. Advocacy - We advocate for organ transplantation and raise awareness of the need for Arizonans to register as organ donors through our online presence, our membership and public events. Promote Healthy Lifestyles - We encourage organ transplant recipients to be involved in Transplant Team Arizona and DonateLife Transplant Games to demonstrate the effectiveness of the transplantation process, assist recipients with the costs associated with participation in the Games, and prove transplantation is not a disability but a second chance at a full and productive life.
