Oregon Support Groups

Support groups provide a forum to share feelings, concerns, information as well as a place to offer peer support and encouragement.  Solicitations or research projects are not conducted at support group meetings, and our support group meetings are always free of charge.

To find out information about support groups, please check the calendar or contact the support group leader or chapter office.

Portland Support Group

Portland support group meetings are scheduled for the 2nd Saturday of the month in January, April, May, September, October, and November.  Occasionally we have guest speakers to educate us about a particular subject, but we always leave time for general discussion.  Family, friends, medical professionals, and caregivers are always welcome!

Meetings are held at Legacy Good Samaritan Hospital, 1015 NW 22nd Avenue, Portland, Oregon.  Parking is free in the hospital parking garages - we will give you a parking validation slip.
