The mission of the MS Society is to end the devastating effects of MS. We support more MS research and serve more people with MS than any other national voluntary health organization. In addition to funding the world's most promising basic clinical research, the Society provides high-quality comminity programs to educate and advocate on critical issues related to MS and supplies vital services to people living with MS.
The Mid South Chapter of the National MS Society serves over 7,200 people with MS in 105 counties across the state of Tennessee, Georgia, Mississippi and Arkansas. The chapter programs for clients focus on 3 areas: knowledge progams, health & wellness programs and independence programs.
Of course it is a great organization and I wanted to volunteer to help with their event. But I was turned off when I went to the volunteer page of the website and the first thing there is a request for a contribution. I didn't appreciate that.

First and foremost, I know where the money goes - RESEARCH. Without research we can't find a cause or cure. Love the staff, love the clients and love the mission. Wonderful group to work with and highly recommend this organization!

This is a great group of people. They have a great compassion to help. They work with the volunteers on their ability to do certain jobs. I have MS and some times I could stand and other times I couldn't. They would work with me so I could continue to volunteer. I am hoping to start helping again. I miss them and I miss helping others. I would highly recommend volunteering for the Indiana MS Society.
