The Peer & Family Support Program
The Peer & Family Support Program (PFSP) is the Reeve Foundation’s national peer to peer mentoring program. The goal of PFSP is to provide critical emotional support, as well as, local and national information and resources to people living with paralysis, and their families and caregivers.

Talk to a peer mentor
Are you paralyzed and have questions that only someone else living with paralysis can answer? Are you a family member or caregiver that has questions that only another family member or caregiver can answer? We can help! Learn more.
What we do
PFSP matches people with certified peer mentors who are of similar age, location, gender, and level of injury or type of paralyzing condition. The program helps people discover what their possibilities are, and how to reach for them. Learn more.
Are you associated with a hospital, rehab center, non-profit, support group, institution or program working in the area of paralysis? Do you offer mentoring or do you want to start offering mentoring in your community? Either way, join our network and help spread peer mentoring across the country. Learn more..

Peer Training and Certification
PFSP has a one of a kind national training and certification program. It combines on-line training with an on-site training day that allows us to bring peer mentor candidates together to discuss peer mentoring and learn from each other. It's a step in the direction of helping your community. Learn more.
