Our Programs

Chronic pain steals: Your identity. Your work. Your relationships.

We know this. We get it. We’re there too, with you.

We started HOMEBASE…to help men like us rebuild our lives.

Beyond talking about our chronic pain; we want action and connection. We want to thrive through the pain.

HOMEBASE has three programs and is designed so that you can start where it is right for you, at your own pace. It’s simple. Sign up for a class, make connections with other men that are going through the same changes as you, become part of the HOMEBASE community with access to resources there to support you through your experience. 

As a member you can join any of these three programs

Connect

Connect

Provides a wide variety of activities including pain specific programs ranging from exercise to music, art, photography, cooking and nutrition.

We found a range of experts to help us design and provide safe evidenced based programs.

You can join group activities or have an individual exercise consult at one of our partner sites. If you haven’t been able to exercise recently, due to pain, the exercise component can help you transition safely with a program tailored to your needs.
