People with ALS come first in everything we do. The ALS Association is dedicated to providing those fighting ALS, their families, and friends with the critical information, support, and resources necessary to live a full life and better meet daily challenges.

Our chapters assist people living with ALS and their families in our community 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 area to help ensure that people living with ALS have access to specialized care, based on best practices.
