What can you do to #ChallengeALS


Support Groups

Our Chapter currently offers support groups that meet every month at locations across Northern, Central, and Southern California and the state of Hawaii. People with ALS, caregivers, family members, friends and loved ones are encouraged to join at any time. There are educational presentations on topics of interest for people facing ALS. Each meeting has time to share stories, hear about other people's experiences and ask questions about living with the disease. These sessions are always free-of-charge and no reservations are required.

Please contact us at 1-866-750-2572 or email us at careservices@alsagoldenwest.org or check the links below for a list of times and locations of the support group meetings.
