Celiac Support Groups in Washington, USA

A celiac's lifestyle is considerably easier with the help of a local support group. To assist in the process of finding local support, we have provided a series of files listing all of the celiac support groups that we are aware of. For each group one or more addresses and/or phone numbers are listed. When possible, e-mail addresses are also listed.

A very lax definition of support groups is used in these listings; any group that meets regularly for mutual support in handling celiac disease and the gluten-free diet is included in these listings. When a formal group is not available but someone is willing to function as a focal point, he/she is included as a "Resource Unit".
