NextSteps Chicago Partners With Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation For Peer & Family Support Program





Goal is to expand mentoring of those living with paralysis across Chicago

SHORT HILLS, N.J., Feb. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation today announced it has partnered with NextSteps Chicago in Illinois to help launch the Reeve Foundation's Peer & Family Support Program (PFSP) in the state. By partnering with NextSteps Chicago, both organizations have a common goal of expanding mentoring across the state of Illinois. The PFSP is a national peer-to-peer mentoring program that utilizes the real life experiences of those that are thriving while living with paralysis.

The mission of the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation's PFSP is to provide critical emotional encouragement, as well as, local and national information and resources to people living with paralysis, and their families and caregivers. Mentors empower people living with paralysis, including our service men and women, their families and caregivers, to achieve a healthy and full life.

This program matches people seeking assistance with a Reeve Foundation Certified Mentor who will be of similar age, gender, level of injury, ethnicity and location when possible. Throughout the process both the client and the Reeve Mentor will have access to all of the resources the Reeve Foundation's Paralysis Resource Center has to offer.

"We are incredibly excited to welcome NextSteps Chicago to our Peer & Family Support Program," said Steve Coleman, Vice President, Peer & Family Support Program for the Reeve Foundation.  "As they are already a Reeve Foundation Community Fitness & Wellness Facility, this partnership will continue to expand the Reeve Foundation's efforts to reach the broader paralysis community in need."  

"NextSteps Chicago's quest is to find the most progressive spinal cord injury research and rehabilitative methods available while we work towards this goal," said Jon O'Connor, Director of NextSteps Chicago. "It is imperative we maintain our health in body and mind and live for the moment while being as productive and positive as possible."
