Program Description:

Support groups exist entirely for you, the person with ALS, and your family or loved ones. Here is a list of some things ALS support groups provide: A forum to share information and practical experience, whether it’s learning how to improve physical function, discussing new drug trials, or experiencing the latest augmentative technologies all geared to helping you live more fully with the disease. A safe place to allow your emotions to speak for you. The group offers an unparalleled opportunity to learn how other people cope with various problems similar to yours, to see that patients and family members are not completely unique, and that others experience the same type of feelings and emotions about the disease as you do. An educational gathering spot where speakers and caregivers address subjects of major interest and exchange; how to incorporate physical and occupational therapy into your life; how to counteract problems in swallowing and chewing; safeguards that can help you avoid pulmonary complications; and ways of coping with depression and caregiver “burnout”, among many other topics. A place to witness firsthand the constant miracle of people continuing to live productive, fulfilling lives in spite of having ALS. Support groups are a great resource for people to maintain control over their lives, to give and take the wisdom and experience that comes from living with a devastating illness. Put these meetings at the top of your calendar; they belong to you. Your presence there will open doors you never knew existed.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Additional Information A Charting Impact Report consists of an organization’s responses to the five questions. Helping validate this self-reported data are three reviews. Once an organization has used the online interface to complete its report, its responses will produce a document with a unique URL that will be shared on this website, on your GuideStar profile, on the reports of charities participating in BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluations, and – in the future – with other websites and information sources about nonprofits. We encourage organizations to use this URL to share their report on their own website and through their own media channels. Participants will receive guidance about promoting their Charting Impact Report, along with other benefits, once they publish their report.

In 2000, we served approx. 50 people living with ALS in NC and offered 4 support groups. Today, we serve more than 450 with an additional 231 people traveling to NC for care. We offer 15 support groups and fund all four ALS clinics in NC. The demand for our services continues to increase steadily. Last year, we funded 409 individual grants to help families with home modifications, transportation, communication devices, and many other important needs. Since our program began in 2004, the Chapter has funded more than 2,300 grants.
