In over 40 years, the Foundation has grown from a small group of volunteers interested in support to a national nonprofit organization that lobbies on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., and offers extensive programs and services, providing help to more than a million people each year. The National Psoriasis Foundation is the voice for millions of Americans who are affected by psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. Our mission is to find a cure for psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis and to eliminate their devastating effects through research, advocacy and education.
