Description

The Scleroderma Foundation Tri-State Chapter, established in 1981 is a federally qualified 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to serving the needs of the scleroderma community.

  • The Tri-State Chapter continues to fund the Scleroderma Foundation's Peer-Review Research Grant Funding Program with assistance through the fundraising efforts of the Stepping Out to Cure Scleroderma Walks by our community. These walks are held in various locations throughout the Tri-State region of NY, NJ & CT bringing together volunteers and communities to support one goal in finding a cure for scleroderma.
  • Support groups are established across our service area, including virtual support groups, and we continually promote starting new groups in under-served areas.
  • We present annual educational forums, where leading scleroderma researchers, doctors, and other professionals are available to patients and caregivers.

Our vision is "Striving for a Cure". Come join us and make an impact in our community.
