Local Care Services

Until there is a cure, there is Care. 

Our Chapter offers a full range of services to guide and assist you as you learn more about ALS. Here you will find important information for people living with ALS, caregivers, family members, friends, and healthcare workers. In addition to serving people living with ALS, our chapter provides services to people with Primary Lateral Sclerosis (PLS) and Primary Muscular Atrophy (PMA).

Each year, through innovative programming and extensive community support, we provide free programs and services to more than 600 of Arizona’s families who are facing the challenges of ALS.

Our staff is available Monday through Friday to answer any questions you may have so please do not hesitate to reach out.
