The ALS Association Texas Chapter
The ALS Association is the only national not-for-profit health organization dedicated solely to the fight against ALS. ALSA covers all the bases — research, patient and community services, public education, and advocacy — in providing help and hope to those facing the disease. The ALS Association (National Office and the Texas Chapter) operates under a shared mission: to help people living with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and to leave no stone unturned in search for the cure.
We work together to accomplish our mission. The Texas Chapter focuses primarily on helping local patients and families live with ALS while the National Office focuses primarily on research and advocacy. The Chapter supports the National Office through revenue sharing and research contributions. The National Office supports the Chapters by providing up-to-date information and materials.
Our accomplishments are made possible by the generosity of others. From the smallest donation to the largest gift, donors touch the ALS community with hope for the future.
About Our Chapter
On February 1, 2012, the North Texas, South Texas, and Greater Houston Chapters of the of The ALS Association merged to become the Texas Chapter of The ALS Association. We believe strongly that this new union will lead to better services, a wider and deeper impact for our efforts, and a stronger voice in ALS advocacy and awareness.
The ALS Association Texas Chapter provides:
High-quality multidisciplinary care through Chapter-supported multidisciplinary ALS Centers and Clinics in your area, Care Managers, and Support Group facilitators that you depend on.
Resources and information about ALS and services with four Chapter offices -in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, San Antonio and Austin- with dedicated staff that you rely on for information and support.
Leadership in research, fundraising, public awareness, and ALS advocacy throughout the state, with our one voice heard over a wider area, and each donation having a greater impact.
Our chapter is set up to better serve the Texas ALS community. A statewide organization allows for more efficient and effective services to ALS families and their caregivers, as well as creating more strategic opportunities for us to leverage support from donors and volunteers who want to make an impact across our great state. From enhancing and expanding the programs we currently offer our patients and their families to increasing our reach to individuals affected by ALS, our goal is to provide the best care and support possible to those suffering with Lou Gehrig’s Disease.
There will be many changes ahead, but our mission remains the same. Please help support our efforts to help strike out Lou Gehrig's disease today!
