Welcome to our new site!

Peer Group Meetings

We welcome all affected by amputation including family, friends, caregivers, and those facing amputation. Monthly meetings are held on the 1st Wed, via Zoom. We look forward to resuming our in-person meetings as soon as it’s safe to do so


Peer Visits

NEAA’s members include Certified Peer Visitors (CPV). We are available to meet with you, one-on-one, and can answer your questions, provide resources, and support you through recovery, as only a fellow amputee can.

We organize and host several seasonal events for our members, including our summer Family BBQ, outings to Local Baseball Games, our Valentines Day pot-luck, and our semi-formal end of year Holiday Party. Check our calendar for upcoming events!



NEAA is here to help you get back to the activities you once enjoyed. We encourage member participation in organized activities such as walks, Bowling, Bocce Ball, and adapted activities sponsored by organizations like AmpSurf and the Mass. Dept of Conservation and Recreation


Help send a young amputee to Summer Camp

Please help us send a young amputee to the Paddy Rossbach Youth Camp. Each year, the NEAA raises funds to provide a memorable and life changing summer camp experience among peers.


By helping each other, we can go from "Limb Loss" to "Limitless"!

Our Mission

The New England Amputee Association’s mission is to reach out to all people effected by limb loss and provide a supportive environment where information and experiences are shared, and friendships are formed.
