Supportive Resources

NAAF was established in 1981 with one clear goal; to offer support to individuals affected by alopecia areata. Though the mission has expanded over the past two decades, the importance of providing a substantial support program to people of all ages and interests has not diminished. NAAF's various support programs and resources offer different ways to create a sense of community amongst individuals with alopecia areata and their families.
