The Story Behind Our Story

aGroupForME was founded by Dr. Gina Ghods. Her journey of creating a support group community began post-9/11 when she was working as a global asset manager in the World Trade Center. After the tragedy, she began participating in her firm’s trauma sessions with other people working at the firm.

These support groups were so invaluable to her coping, managing, and moving forward during those challenging times, that she decided to change careers and become an advocate for support group communities.

While running a caregiver’s support group for 8 years at the Alzheimer’s Association, she noticed all the challenges people endured to attend their weekly support group sessions.  Schedule restraints, dependent care issues, transportation challenges, and finding the right group inspired her to create aGroupForME, an online support group community where anyone can get the support they need at a place that works best for them.

aGroupForME provides moderated, tailored, and scheduled support group sessions online. We are NOT a social sharing site.

Your privacy is of the utmost importance to us. We don’t sell your personal information or data.

We tailor groups to your specific needs so that you are only connected to those who share the same issues and concerns.

Online support groups connect on a scheduled, ongoing basis.

Join from anywhere, on any device.  We encourage all members to join from a private area.

Moderators are vetted and assigned to host the support groups to make sure the members:

  • Are the right fit for the group
  • Stay on group topic
  • Follow our Terms of Use and Community Guidelines

To further improve your group experience, all groups are limited to 12 members at any one time.  A limited group size allows all members the opportunity to participate during their online support group sessions.

Online support groups offer you the opportunity to connect to others, feel less alone and gain better ways of managing, coping and dealing with life challenges and difficulties.


Our Mission

Our mission is to build the most trusted online support group community where everyone can get the right support at a time and place that works best for them.
