Mission Statement

The Epilepsy Foundation Western/Central Pennsylvania (EFWCP) is dedicated to providing programs and services for the prevention, control, and community understanding of epilepsy/seizure disorders. Through innovative and nationally-recognized programs and services -- public education, information, referral, employment training, advocacy, summer camp, community education events, seminars, and workshops -- we endeavor to improve the quality of life for people who have epilepsy.


The Epilepsy Foundation Western/Central Pennsylvania (EFWCP) is a private, non-profit service organization providing public education and supportive services to individuals and families affected by epilepsy/seizure disorders. Our primary goal is to support a life without compromise for all persons who have epilepsy or a seizure disorder.

With offices and staff in Pittsburgh, Harrisburg, Johnstown and Erie, the EFWCP now offers its nationally recognized programs and services to residents in 49 counties throughout western and central Pennsylvania.

The work of the EFWCP is supported through private donations, a variety of grants and a contract with the Pennsylvania Department of Health, as well as special fundraising events.

With support from a volunteer Board of Directors and Professional Advisory Board that provides medical expertise, the EFWCP works to ensure an improved quality of life for those who face the challenges presented by epilepsy or seizure disorders.

The EFWCP was founded in 1972 and in 2002 celebrated 30 years of growth and success. We are an independently incorporated affiliate of the Epilepsy Foundation National.

This is an exceptional organization with a very hardworking group of people! I have not volunteer for this particular event, but I have volunteered for the run/walk that takes place in June and it is a spectacular event. I hear that Fair Play is FANTASTIC and plan to help out this year!
