Welcome to the Central & Northeastern Florida Chapter of the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation!


We serve 43 counties in the state of Florida covering Central (East & West Coast) and North Florida.  Our chapter strives to raise awareness and provide support for patient families through education programs, free literature, support groups, volunteer opportunities, and a variety of fundraising events and campaigns.  We are working to develop strong relationships throughout the healthcare community to better serve those individuals and families battling Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.

Please be sure to check out each page of our website to learn of a variety of ways you may get involved.  We would love to partner with you!
