We embrace thousands of those diagnosed with ALS with the world's most comprehensive program of care and services. ALS United of Georgia is committed to enhancing the quality of life of those living with ALS through the many cost free programs we offer to individuals and families affected by this disease. We understand the value of those with ALS being able to communicate, function safely in their home, and travel to ALS Clinics for comprehensive evaluation and treatment. Our programs are designed to meet these essential care needs as well as the emotional needs of those in our community and caregivers.

Advocacy National 2017


ALS United of Georgia focuses on state for research, health & long-term care, and caregiver support. The ALS Community's involvement in advocacy has led to increased federal funding for ALS research at the NIH and federal funding for ALS research through the Department of Defense.

ALS United of Georgia gathers constituents throughout the year to join together to educate Members of Congress on the importance of stepping up the fight to conquer ALS through research, care and support.


Through collaboration with other organizations we work to support research that is advancing new treatments and an end to ALS.
