The intertwined goals of helping to serve those living with ALS while working to find a cure, provide many opportunities for supporting the ALS Center.

Volunteer support is an essential component to the activities of the ALS Center. Ways in which your time can be of service to others can be expressed by:

Helping other patients or family members in your community with errands, transportation, and accompanying them on their medical visits. Helping with administrative duties in the Center related to patient educational materials, assisting with patient visits, providing assistance at educational conferences or fundraising activities. Helping other patients and families cope with different aspects of living with ALS by being a peer counselor. Providing support through conversation, sharing of experiences, emails and your personal time.
