Junior CBOs

The Sickle Cell Community Consortium is a multi-stakeholder collective comprised of community-based organizations (CBOs), patient and caregiver advocates, community partners along healthcare and research advisors.  Collectively these partners form the General Assembly of CBOs, the decision-making body of the Consortium, and we are delighted that you have decided to join the team.

Ways to partner with the Consortium:

Junior CBOs: 
There are many groups doing wonderful work in the community that are not yet prepared for full credentialing. The Consortium works to provide these groups with resources necessary to fully establish themselves as 501(c)3 not-for-profit organizations. Junior CBOs must be actively working towards obtaining official non-profit status and will have obtained 501c3 status within two years of joining the Consortium team. The Consortium will provide guidance to assist if needed.
