The new Ambassador and Community Champions program will work to expand the voice of and for our community, deepen relationships with community members and partners, and to help ensure no amputee is alone.
The Amputee Coalition is dedicated and committed to providing and supporting an inclusive space for the limb loss and limb difference community, their families, caregivers, and allies.
