Our Mission

Our mission is to promote awareness, education, service and research for those affected by lupus.


Organizational Transition

The Lupus Foundation of Pennsylvania is in transition. Due to a variety of factors, we have found it necessary to rethink our organizational goals and structure. As of May 31, 2018, we will be closing the office at Station Square and moving all operations to a web-based platform to allow for a needs assessment of our clients and stakeholders and better prepare for the future. Our website will contain educational information, links to local and national resources, details regarding programs such as seminars and support groups, and contact information for trained patient advocates from across the state. Lupus literature, a PA Physician Guide, and other resources for people with lupus and their loved ones will also be available on-line.

In light of these changes, we will be suspending all fundraising events. We will continue to appreciate any donations to assist in our transition to this new model of service. Alternatively, donations may also be sent to: UPMC Lupus Center for Excellence, Lupus Research Alliance, or the Lupus Foundation of America.

We hope this transitional period will allow us to further understand the changing needs of people with lupus and develop fresh ideas and programs. Please check out our updated website in the coming weeks.

Sincerely,

Board of Directors
