Lou's Crew

Our dedicated volunteer team is called "Lou's Crew" in honor of Lou Gehrig. 

These wonderful volunteers expand the reach of our message and increase progress toward our mission.  The crew includes students looking to get involved in their community, those who have been personally impacted by ALS and want to make a positive difference in honor of their loved ones, employee groups who are choosing to come together and use their resources for good, and everyone in between. 

Join Lou's Crew by signing up for our newsletter!

Family Assistance Volunteer Program

Living with ALS makes daily tasks more challenging.  The family assistance program matches trained volunteers with families affected by ALS.  Volunteers can help a person living with ALS or their family with anything they might need assistance with, outside of direct care and transportation. 

By volunteering for a family affected by ALS, you will decrease stress, increase the quality of life for the person living with ALS, and make life a little easier for the whole family.
