Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The Lupus Foundation of America is the nation's leading nonprofit voluntary health organization dedicated to finding the causes of and cure for lupus andproviding support and services to all people affected by lupus.
The Connecticut Lupus Foundation was established in May of 1973. In 1973 there were only a few individual chapters around the country, but the Lupus Foundation of America had not been established as a national organization.
Years later the lupus organizations in various states, including the Connecticut Chapter, formed the Lupus Foundation of America, Inc. and we became the Lupus Foundation of America, Connecticut Chapter, Inc.
We are a non-profit, non-sectarian organization and a National Health Agency for the combined Federal Campaign. We are a proud member of the Community Health Charities. Except for two staff members, the chapter is operated by dedicated volunteers; many are coping with lupus themselves. We hold four general meetings per year which cover a wide variety of lupus related topics to benefit the lupus patient, family and friends.
