Target demographics: Everyone affected by multiple sclerosis (MS) living in South Carolina or western North Carolina

Direct beneficiaries per year: More than 8,000

Geographic areas served: South Carolina, western North Carolina

Programs: The Chapter provides direct services for people living with MS, including emergency financial assistance and employment, financial planning, information and referral, and service management resources. MS Service Days connect volunteers with people living with MS for a day of home repair and visitation, while the brand-new Friendly Visitor Program sends volunteers to visit patients with MS living in long-term care facilities. Chapter-supported Self-Help Groups allow people living with MS to learn from others sharing the same struggles.

In addition to direct services, the Chapter hosts teleconferences, including monthly educational phone conferences and quarterly conferences for people newly diagnosed with MS. The Chapter also sponsors educational conferences, retreats for families / children / couples living with MS, wellness programs and trainings, and a scholarship program for children either living with MS or having a parent with MS.

The Chapter also raises awareness of multiple sclerosis through local, state and federal advocacy opportunities and by working with healthcare providers to educate them about the challenges of managing patients with MS.

Mission:
The Mid-Atlantic Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society is a community of individuals who want to achieve a world free of MS. The Chapter is committed to the philosophy of wellness, offering those living with MS the encouragement, materials and skills necessary to achieve and maintain meaningful, productive lifestyles.

Founded in 1955, the Chapter helps over 8,000 individuals in western North Carolina and the state of South Carolina impacted by MS. We provide comprehensive support services and educational programs to people with MS, their family and friends, and raise money to fund cutting edge research into the cause and cure of multiple sclerosis.
