Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

ALS's operating programs focus on education people with ALS (PALS) and their families about living with ALS. This is done through: a comprehensive network of support groups; providing financial support for respite care services, workshops including our Annual Caregivers Conference, Ask the Doctor and a 3-part series for Newly Diagnosed Patients and seminars for respite care providers; The ALS Informer, our quarterly newsmagazine, provides practical information for PALS, their families and caregivers; and our support groups offer PALS and their families an opportunity to talk with and share information with other people in similar situations. Additionally, our medical social worker links people with critically needed community services and helps them through the health care insurance system. For those in need, the Equipment Loan Closet provides needed durable medical equipment to PALS free of charge.
