Hope for HS, founded in 2013 by Angie Parks-Miller and Dr. Melissa Williams, is the first face-to-face support group in the United States for those with HS, their caregivers, and loved ones. Support group meetings started at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan, and now, there are chapters in New York, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Minnesota, Virginia, Georgia and Florida.

HS Connect is a patient-centered organization providing resources, support and solutions to the Hidradenitis Suppurativa community. Passionate about helping others navigate HS, they personally know the toll this disease takes physically, mentally, emotionally, and financially. Their goal is to change the narrative, eradicate the stigmas surrounding HS, and help educate as many people as possible, including non-HS specialty dermatologists, surgeons, caretakers, spouses, kids, partners, parents, family, and friends. HS Connect was created to empower those who have HS to share their stories, allow their voices to be heard, and ensure they’re not living alone or in silence.
