The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
The Epilepsy Support Network of Orange County is committed to building a community of support to improve the lives of those affected by epilepsy through education, programs and advocacy.
The Epilepsy Support Network of Orange County is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2009 by a group of compassionate, vision-driven people determined to provide crucial support and relevant services to the 32,000 Orange County residents living with epilepsy and their families. For 11,000 of these individuals medical treatment has been ineffective and they continue to have seizures. Because epilepsy is a complex neurological condition, many times people need help sorting through medical, educational, social and emotional aspects of the condition. Most of what the general public knows is based on harmful oversimplification, myths and outdated information, further perpetuating the problem.
The Epilepsy Support Network of Orange County is improving the outlook for people diagnosed with epilepsy. We are accomplishing this by providing the highest quality epilepsy specific educational programs as well as support services to guide patients and families with epilepsy through the medical, psychological, social, and educational challenges that epilepsy uniquely presents until there is a cure. ESN's energetic and experienced staff members have succeeded in accomplishing our goal of seizure free lives for many of our members.
