National Multiple Sclerosis Society Mid America Chapter Overview
Profile ( less )
Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: Assist with mailings, volunteer for events such as Bike or Walk MS, assist with programs or individual projects as needed.
Programs: Care Management is a system by which the Chapter provides intensive and individualized care for people with MS. On-site social work professionals help clients with issues necessitated by their multiple sclerosis, such as help with housing, transportation, access to medical care, assistance with insurance and Social Security issues and family support. Under Care Management, direct assistance is provided to people with MS through financial assistance in a crisis related to their MS, or through medical equipment to help them maintain mobility and independence. Clients must complete an application and/or staff assessment to receive these services, and financial assistance is always provided to a third-party vendor. Medical equipment is dispensed either on a short- or long-term loan basis, through the Chapter’s partnerships and collaborations with community vendors.
The National MS Society''s vision is a world free of MS.
The Society''s mission statement is: We mobilize people and resources to drive research for a cure and to address the challenges of everyone affected by MS.
