ALS is a degenerative neurological disease that leads to progressive weakness. ALS does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, gender, nationality, or economic status. The cause of ALS is still unknown, and there is no cure...however, there is hope.

The three pillars of the ALS Hope Foundation’s mission are Care, Education and Research. We provide funding for care at the MDA/ALS Center of Hope at Temple University Lewis Katz School of Medicine, one of the first multidisciplinary ALS clinics in the country; we provide educational events to inform people living with ALS and the public about ALS, both nationally and internationally; and we support the Neuromuscular Research Laboratory at Temple University Lewis Katz School of Medicine. The Foundation also funds local and international efforts to find the cause and cure of ALS.

We are honored to have spent more than 20 years serving the ALS community and are committed to continuing our work until there is a cure.


The MDA/ALS Center of Hope is located at Temple University Neurosciences Center! Learn more here...
