Target demographics: people with pain and thier caregivers
Geographic areas served: the USA
Programs: US Pain Foundation is created by people with pain for people with pain. As a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to serving those who live with pain conditions and their care providers, U.S. Pain Foundation exists to help individuals find resources and inspiration.
Our mission is simple: to educate, connect, inform, advocate and empower those living with pain. In addition we work to educate the public on pain issues and to raise awareness on pain in America.
We recognize and validate the 100 million Americans who battle pain every day by offering positive programs that empower and educate, being a source of support and hope, encouraging others to share personal stories and advocating for proper medical care.
Many times chronic pain is invisible to the outside world. I personally know several people with chronic pain and know of their struggles and battles with this horrible condition. Their suffering and depression can be unbearable. The USPainFoundation brings not only awareness to these silent warriors but a sense of hope and community to those suffering with pain. They realize they are not the only ones with these conditions and they are able to learn and relate through others' stories and also learn of alternative coping and healing mechanisms. This organization can be very powerful and needs more recognition and exposure.
