The Oley Foundation is a national, non-profit organization dedicated to donating tube-feeding supplies, providing educational and emotional support, outreach activities, and clinical outcome information for individuals who depend on home intravenous (parenteral) and tube (enteral) nutrition, their families, professionals, and others. Individuals who depend on such nutrition include those who cannot receive enough nutrients from the food they eat because of severe gastrointestinal disorders that may impair their swallowing or intestinal absorption. The foundation facilitates a national network of regional volunteers who provide emotional support and outreach at the local level. Comprised of individuals who are themselves users of home nutrition and their family members, the network offers services ranging from telephone support and hospital visitation to lectures and self-help get-togethers. The Oley Foundation also sponsors yearly conferences that bring together home nutrition users with experts in the field. Educational materials produced by the Oley Foundation include brochures, audio-visual aids, and information about travel, swimming, and other topics.
