Programs

Are you newly diagnosed or experiencing new symptoms or treatment?  Want insights from someone who’s been down the same path?

Power of Two is a Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America support program that connects people facing challenges brought on by living with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Individuals seeking help are matched with a peer mentor who has experienced similar medical and personal concerns. Power of Two peer mentors are trained to support participants through two phone, email, or video chat exchanges.

The program is open to people with Crohn’s or colitis and those with children, family members, or other loved ones with these diseases. Anyone over the age of 10 can apply to be a mentor to provide insights into living with Crohn’s and colitis. (Individuals under the age of 18 will need parental/guardian consent.)

 Whether you are seeking support or are willing to help others as a peer mentor, please contact Paddy Harrigan at (310) 694-3340 or pharrigan@ccfa.org.
