The Hemophilia Foundation of Southern California is always looking to better serve the community. Our Community Groups provide space where patients and caregivers can openly share about their similar experiences, challenges, and journeys. These groups are meeting virtually during Covid-19 but we hope to meet again soon.

Community Liaisons act as a representative of HFSC and as a liaison with new families who would like to be involved with HFSC in various geographic regions throughout our 9 counties. They act as hosts to our community dinners and can help you connect with other similarly affected families close by. Due to Covid, these dinners are temporarily on hold.
