How Can I Start a Support Group?

 

If you can’t find a support group in your area, we’d love to help you start one. Anyone who needs support or wants to share information can start a group.

If you are located in an area covered by one of our regional chapters, contact them for help getting started.

How Can I Affiliate My Group With AAFA?

The next step for a successful support group is getting it affiliated with AAFA. Affiliation gives your group credibility. It also gives you the support of a national organization. Affiliating with AAFA is free. Here are some of the benefits of affiliation:

  • Referrals from AAFA’s 1-800-7-ASTHMA
  • Your group gets added to our searchable list of support groups
  • Free subscription to Leader’s Link, AAFA’s support group leader/advisor newsletter
  • Free educational materials from AAFA and KFA
  • Your group’s educational or outreach events featured on KFA’s events calendar
  • Access to ESG Leaders Facebook page (coming soon)
  • Free resources and special mailings throughout the year
  • Free Kyle Dine allergy awareness video – allergy education for students (in multiple languages)

To affiliate with AAFA, your support group is required to:

  • Have a minimum of five members
  • Recruit a physician to serve as a medical advisor
  • Complete affiliation forms and submit semi-annual reports on the group’s activities

For more on how to start a support group and affiliate it with AAFA, read our Support Group Affiliation Guide Download PDF.
