Our Care Services Coordinators' work is guided by the needs of those we serve throughout the Commonwealth.
The ALS Association Massachusetts Chapter strives to support every individual living with ALS and their families, predominantly in areas and spaces that other support mechanisms do not reach. Care Services staff help navigate insurance and other complex systems to access resources around the state. All programs and services are provided free of charge, allowing the people we support to live life to the fullest and alleviating some of the financial burden of ALS. Our purpose is to build and empower our community through continuous engagement with family, friends and neighbors.
The ALS Association Massachusetts Chapter provides a myriad of programs to people living with ALS and their families. These programs include but are not limited to:
- Durable Medical Equipment Loan Program
- Ramp Loan Program
- Insurance & Benefits Counseling
- Community Groups
- Camp Hope Loves Company
- And more!
