Organization Information

Mission Statement

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.

Description

The Alabama Chapter was founded in late 2004 to serve the needs of those living with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and their caregivers. Initially, we only served the North Alabama community, but due to strong interest, we have expanded our service area to include the entire state of Alabama. Headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama, we are the only ALS Association-sanctioned organization in the state. While we make every effort to offer all of our services to any ALSA-registered patient, please note that due to travel distance and limited resources, in some cases we cannot provide certain "hands-on" services to patients in remote regions of the state. We do however have valuable information and referral services available to any ALS patient or caregiver in Alabama.

The ALS Association is the only national not-for-profit health organization dedicated solely to the fight against ALS. The ALS Association covers all the bases - research, patient and community services, public education, and advocacy - in providing help and hope to those facing the disease.
