Mission Statement

MISSION & GOALS Since 1983, the Michigan Parkinson Foundation (MPF) has focused on the educational and support needs of people with Parkinson's, their families and health professionals. Through a strategic planning process, the following have been developed as guiding principles: Our Mission: To educate and provide support to people with Parkinson's and related disorders, their loved ones and care partners, and the physicians and other allied health professionals who diagnose and treat those affected by the illness. To support research into the mechanisms underlying the disease and therapeutic strategies aimed at reducing the burden of illness. To engage and enlist the support of institutions and individuals whose activities impact the needs of people with Parkinson's and related disorders. Our Goal: Every person with Parkinson's and related disorders shall receive responsive compassionate quality care and support.


We are a non-profit organization that is looking for volunteers to help out in our office and also with our patient education programs, fundraisers (Walkathon and Cabaret) and for other events that may come up. There are over 30,000 people in the state of Michigan that have Parkinson's disease. We have 74 support groups throughout the state. We offer adult day care assistance, medications assistance, educational programs, and information and referrals.

We need help with assembling information packets, direct mail campaigns, data entry, online research. We are a small 4 person office in a nice office building with easy accessible parking.
