As part of our mission, the Chapter provides programs, services, tools and resources dedicated to improving the quality of life for people with MS and their families.

Chapter programs and services provide knowledge about MS, effective disease management techniques, independence, community involvement and health care options. We offer classes, activities, outreach, support and education programs. Professional, trained staff are committed to helping the MS community gain education about MS, develop effective strategies for symptom management, maintain positive and productive relationships, and live as independently as possible. Last year over 18,000 people turned to the Chapter for help and information.
