ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Progress


Resource Support Groups

Support Group Logo

Our Chapter organizes resource support groups throughout our region to help people with ALS, their families and caregivers cope with the disease. Led by professionals, group members share their personal experiences and their knowledge of ALS They learn they are not alone nor without help or hope.

Resource support groups are available in Maryland and in Virginia.
Some groups are available for caregivers only and other groups are open to people with ALS, their family members and friends. These groups are designed to share information and strategies for preserving independence and quality of life. Groups will also occasionally offer speakers on relevant topics.
