JA Parent Support Network

Leading a support group is an enjoyable and rewarding experience and in 2018 we are piloting a program to provide support to JA Parents. Our support groups are led by parents or guardians of kids/teens living with childhood rheuatic diseases. JA Parent Support Network Leaders go through an application and training process to ensure that they have the tools needed to begin and grow a JA Parent Support Network in their community. As a future Leader, you know the unique challenges of raising a child with arthritis and other childhood rheumatic diseases and will connect with other parents locally who are also navigating life with a child with JA. You will meet amazing people, make lifelong friends, and create great memories.

A JA Parent Support Network Leader:

  • Plans, coordinates, and facilitates fun and engaging group meetings and social activities and events for parents in your community.
  • Promotes, markets, and maintains a group that is supportive and a safe place to share thoughts, feelings and experiences.
  • Uses our Constituent Relationship Management Software to: add events to our website, maintain contacts and a group email list to communicate to group participants and report on attendance at support group activities.
  • Communicates with Arthritis Foundation staff, group participants, and prospective group participants.
