Please meet a few of our Certified PEER Visitors! 

                                                                           A PEER Visitor is a Nationally Certified amputee limb loss counselor who takes a course and becomes
                                                                           certified through the Amputee Coalition which is a national organization dedicated to supporting limb
                                                                           loss in the United States. Certified PEER Visitors have experienced limb loss themselves and understand
                                                                           the physical and emotional ramifications of experiencing amputation and living with limb loss

                                                                           If you, a loved one, or friend needs a PEER visit from another amputee, we can meet with you before
                                                                           your amputation or during your recovery in the hospital, a rehabilitation center or your home.
