What We Do
We connect need with support. We connect questions with answers. We connect thought leaders with new ideas. We connect research to funding and advocates to challenge the status quo.
Why? Because we know the ALS community like no one else. We know what it takes to deliver meaningful services, create the most engaging partnerships,achieve better outcomes with greater efficiency, and build the deepest connections to help those in greatest need.
The ALS Network is committed to helping people live longer and better with ALS by providing comprehensive, integrated, multidisciplinary community-based care at no cost to the ALS community.
We understand the value of being able to communicate, function safely at home, travel to ALS clinics for comprehensive evaluation and treatment, and so much more.
Our evidence based programs are designed to meet essential care needs for the person diagnosed with ALS, as well as loved ones and caregivers.
For decades, the ALS Network has been at the forefront of leading advocacy efforts and promoting important public policy initiatives to improve the lives of those living with ALS and to accelerate ALS research.
Our commitment to leading in this arena is unwavering, and our successes will be achieved, as always, in partnership with the ALS community and advocates who share their powerful stories to affect positive and impactful change.
As one of the largest patient service organizations in the U.S., we are uniquely positioned to power progress in ALS research. We spearhead and fund collaborative, innovative, inclusive, and strategic initiatives and engage the ALS community in partnership with some of the nation’s leading ALS clinicians, academic institutions, federal and state agencies, industry representatives, and other nonprofit organizations aligned with our mission and vision.
