H.O.P.E. Program

The H.O.P.E. Program connects cancer patients or caregivers looking for peer support to someone who has had a similar experience with cancer. Matched individuals can decide how often and in what ways to communicate with one another — whether by phone, in person or other means. Our volunteers receive training in providing appropriate peer support.

Please call 614-293-8771 if you have any questions.
