Find a Local PPMD Connect Group

PPMD’s Connect (formally FACES) is the official volunteer, parent-led outreach program of Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy. PPMD’s Connect serves as a regional PPMD point of contact for families affected by Duchenne and Becker.

PPMD’s Connect Goals

  • Family Mentoring: To help local and regional families better understand the diagnosis of Duchenne or Becker muscular dystrophy and connect them with local resources.
  • Grassroots Outreach: To support national awareness and advocacy campaigns.
  • Fundraising: To support PPMD research, advocacy, care, and education programs.

PPMD’s Connect program launched with its first location in New Jersey at the end of 2008. Since then, we’ve expanded to more states and are gearing up to add additional groups. A Volunteer Coordinator(s) is chosen to head up each of PPMD’s Connect locations, and groups are required to hold in-person family/parent get togethers and maintain consistent communication with their groups throughout the year.
