About Ulman Foundation

Ulman Foundation is a non-profit organization that changes lives by creating a community of support for young adults, and their loved ones, impacted by cancer. We offer support to adolescent and young adult patients, survivors and their loved ones through our patient navigation programs, our traditional and non-traditional support groups, and through Ulman House (“the House”), our no-cost home away from home for those traveling to Baltimore for treatment.

At Ulman, we believe the community of support that we create for our patients begins with creating a community of support amongst our team. We strive to maintain an environment where we can all bring our best, most authentic, and whole selves to work, where we feel seen, heard, respected and valued, and where we have the tools, resources and support we need to be successful in our work and in our lives.

Cancer affects us all. The Ulman Foundation supports and recognizes each individual as a whole. No matter where you’re from, what you believe, who you love, or how you identify, you are welcomed, respected and supported within the Ulman Community.
