Get Support

The CHARGE Syndrome Foundation has many ways to offer support and resources to parents, professionals, and people with CHARGE syndrome. Our local, national, and international partners provide an array of services to help the CHARGE syndrome community.

The CHARGE Syndrome Foundation, along with our partners, can assist with finding services and programs such as: new parent support and education, family meetings, sibling and grandparent support, regional and national conferences, partnerships with CHARGE Syndrome Clinics, training for medical professionals and educators, and advocacy.  You can start here.

New parents can find out more here.

Our CHARGE family has experienced the loss of far too many amazing individuals with CHARGE. Every life is precious, and we grieve together as a community. It is important for everyone to know that the loss of a child, grandchild, sibling, relative, or friend does not and should not signal the end of your relationship with the Foundation. You will always be part of our CHARGE family. Please click here to access resources, support groups, and ways everyone in our CHARGE family can help.
