The ALS Association Louisiana-Mississippi Chapter is seeking community-based volunteers to enrich the lives of patients and caregivers in your area through our Family Assistance Program.
Our chapter is honored to serve as a hub of support and resources for Persons and Caregivers living with ALS (pALS and cALS). One of the greatest needs we have identified across Louisiana and Mississippi is for help in and around the homes where our patients live. As caregivers dedicate more and more time to patient care, it can become extremely challenging to keep up with the demands of everyday living. Finding the time and resources to complete tasks that many take for granted such as washing the car in the driveway, AV setup, cutting the yard, getting the kids to classes, or cleaning the baseboards can be all but impossible for ALS families.
The goal of the Family Assistance Program is to match patients and caregivers in need with local volunteer individuals, groups, businesses who can assist with one-time, grant-supported and volunteer-based small projects such as lawn care; vehicle detailing; small construction; dog walking; cleaning; in-home/local music, sports, arts, etc. lessons for the children of pALS; and so much more.
Are you a pAL or cAL who needs help with projects in and around your home? Are you an individual, group, or business who wants to help people living with ALS in your community? We're so excited to match patients and families with individual and group volunteers across Louisiana and Mississippi.
