About Our Chapter
The Northern Ohio Chapter was founded in 1988 to serve the needs of those living with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and their caregivers. The mission of The ALS Association is to discover treatments and a cure for ALS, and to serve, advocate for, and empower people affected by ALS to live their lives to the fullest.
The ALS Association is the only national not-for-profit health organization dedicated solely to the fight against ALS. We cover all the bases — patient and community services, research, public education, and advocacy — in providing help and hope to those facing the disease. Our vision is to create a world without ALS.
The Northern Ohio Chapter focuses on helping local patients and families live with ALS while supporting National research and advocacy programs. The Chapter works under a strategic plan enacted in January 2021.
Our accomplishments are made possible by the generosity of others. From the smallest donation to the largest gift, donors touch the ALS community with hope for the future.
