Find a Support Group in Your Area


Our Support Network is essential to all the chapter’s efforts, working tirelessly to support patients, our programs and events and advocate for awareness. On any given weekend, you can find our support group members at health fairs across the state, spreading awareness and sharing our resources.

Our facilitators represent an outstanding group of volunteers who understand the issues that challenge individuals with lupus. Our support groups are often times the first valuable resource for both newly diagnosed and those who feel they are living with this disease without the understanding of friends and family.

Print a list of our current support groups in Georgia.

Please contact the Support Group leader or the LFA, Georgia Chapter office (770-333-5930) prior to meetings to confirm meeting dates and times.
