LOCAL CARE SERVICES

If you're a person with ALS or you care for one, we're here to help. We'll connect you with the local resources you need, including equipment loans, grants to help with ALS-related expenses, and access to ALS clinics and clinical trials.

NEW PATIENT ENROLLMENT

The Care Services Grant program provides financial assistance to individuals for expenses related to ALS or PLS that are not traditionally covered by insurance such as private insurance, Medicare, Medicaid and other assistance programs.
