Our mission is very powerful: To discover treatments and a cure for ALS, and to serve, advocate for, and empower people affected by ALS to live their lives to the fullest.
As important as research is, we must not neglect the needs of those living with ALS today. We have a number of important programs and services available to help people living with ALS and their families cope with the day-to-day challenges that confront them. We offer respite care, durable medical equipment, communication equipment, monthly resource and support group meetings, and clinic support.
The ALS Association North Carolina Chapter works diligently to make sure people living with ALS receive the best possible care and support. But we can't do it alone. With your support, we will be one step closer to finding a cause and cure for this disease while providing the necessary services to those living with and fighting ALS.
There are many ways for you to join the fight and help us #DefeatALS:

The contributions of volunteers are essential to us achieving our mission. Each year, our Chapter participates in numerous fundraising, awareness and information-based opportunities throughout the state. These activities create a multitude of tasks with which volunteers can easily assist, including administrative work and mailings, helping at various events and with patient services.
