A 64-year-old woman with ALS would love a volunteer to assist her with cleaning and various household chores due to increasing hand weakness. She currently lives alone in an apartment. Tuesday mornings would be the best time for a volunteer to visit: she would ideally like someone who can stop by weekly for approximately 2 hours at a time.

If you have an extra hour or two in your week to help a neighbor in need, we'd love to hear from you! This opportunity is part of the ALS Association's Family Assistance Program:
