Mentoring Program

When individuals and families affected by FOP contact the IFOPA, they often want to speak to another family dealing with FOP. To facilitate this process, the IFOPA has created a Mentoring Program, which is designed to provide a family-to-family connection in addition to staff support. Volunteer representatives in the Mentoring Program will be called Mentors; they will either be affected by FOP or be the parent/sibling/caregiver of a person with FOP.

Mentors in this program will serve families in the following ways:

  • Listen and share their own experiences with FOP
  • Provide a route of communication for families in their region
  • Be familiar with IFOPA programs and provide useful information and guidance based on that knowledge

If you need mentoring assistance, please contact the IFOPA.
