The Foundation serves more than 90 percent of the ALS population in the Chicago area with an array of services, such as support group meetings, professional in-home consultation services and respite care grants. Also, the Foundation is affiliated with Northwestern Medicine where it supports two world-class scientific research laboratories and a multi-disciplinary clinical program.
