  • Historically, our community has banded together to protect the blood supply and create health insurance reforms. Today, HFNC provides advocacy in several ways. We participate in a state legislative day hosted by the Hemophilia Council of California and send community members to Washington D.C. for national legislative days. We also develop our community's advocacy skills during March is Bleeding Disorders Awareness Month. We also help to train our community members to advocate for yourself or your family at school, work, hospital, and other locations, because this is vital to get the care that you need.

  • The Hemophilia Foundation of Northern California (HFNC) serves the needs of people impacted by bleeding disorders through enhancing quality of life by providing support, education, outreach, advocacy and research through our affiliated national foundations.

  • HFNC is a community focused organization. We hope that every community member can feel heard, cared for, and loved. We couldn't do this work without our board of directors and our staff. Our Executive Director is Andrea Orozco, our Education & Advocacy Director is Ashley Gregory and our Community Outreach Coordinator is Pedro Preciado.

  • We work closely with our partners to provide resources for our community members. We have an emergency assistance program (EAP) that provides emergency financial support to families affected by bleeding disorders.

  • Times are changing. Old funding sources are shifting priorities. We need your support, both financially and in volunteer hours. Learn how you can help make a difference for our community. Get involved to ensure that current and future generations have the resources they need to live happy healthy lives.
