National Niemann-Pick Disease Foundation (NNPDF) gives emotional support, provides assistance through a crisis, shares resources and ideas about such issues as doctors, clinics, insurance companies and other health and human service programs. They provide practical suggestions about day-to-day care of the children, and establish relationships with others who, on a personal level, understand both the anguish and the recovery of being a parent of a dying child.
NNPDF provides parent-to-parent matching through membership, families are listed in a directory which is distributed annually. There is a new family packet that includes brochures, fact sheets, and family "care" information. There is also a list of organizations that can be helpful resources. NPD publishes the Niemann-Pick Newsletter, three times a year that is included in the annual membership.
