We provide travel and lodging assistance to Ohio residents whether your appointment is in Ohio or you are having to travel out-of-state. AFO is connected to a mighty team of trained volunteers who can support your logistic and childcare needs.

Please contact the clinic you are scheduled at directly first if you need assistance paying for your appointment. If you need additional assistance, please fill out our online form here or at the bottom of this page. A Resource Coordinator will respond to you within 48 hours. If your appointment is scheduled further out (2-3 weeks or more) we may respond after 48 hours. If you are not able to access the form, or fill it out, please call our warmline number at (614) 300-7811.

Please note: AFO's warmline is not a live call line. When calling, please leave a voicemail & a number we can safely return your call to. 

You need to have an appointment booked before we can assist with practical support needs. If you need help finding a clinic to schedule an appointment at, find a list of clinics we partner with here. You can also find the clinic nearest to you here
