People living with ALS come first in everything we do. We’re dedicated to providing people fighting ALS and their families and friends with the critical information, support, and resources they need to live full lives and better meet daily challenges.
Our chapters help people living with ALS and their families across the country through our equipment loan closets, support groups, augmentative communication and assistive technology program, caregiver support, and education and outreach.
We also collaborate with the best ALS physicians and clinics in our service areas to help ensure that people living with ALS have access to specialized multidisciplinary care.
Here are just a few ways we provided critical assistance to those living with ALS and their families in 2018:
- More than $4 million in grants were provided through our Certified Center Program
- Nearly 9,000 people were served specifically through our Certified Treatment Centers of Excellence and Recognized Treatment Centers
- More than 2,400 veterans received assistance through our nationwide chapter network

We need your help TODAY to continue to provide the best care across the country. Your tax-deductible gift will allow us to continue these crucial services into 2019. We can’t do it without you!
