The A.L.S. Family Charitable Foundation was started in 2001 in hopes of creating a brighter future for those living with A.L.S. in New England and honors all of the courageous individuals and families touched by this disease .


Over 30,000 people are living with A.L.S. today , a disease that causes a progressive degeneration of motor neurons in the body affecting voluntary muscle control.  Those affected eventually lose their livelihood, their independence and ultimately their lives.


We help those living with the disease today celebrate their time left with their loved ones, offering strength, hope and joy through our Patient Programs.  We help future generations through financial support of cutting edge research to one day find a cure.


Until there is a cure…there is the A.L.S. Family Charitable Foundation
