Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Health, Nerve, Muscle & Bone Diseases

Mission: The Multiple Sclerosis Foundation, known in the MS community as MS Focus, is a nonprofit organization focused on providing free services that address the critical needs of people with MS and their families, helping them maintain the best quality of life. MS Focus provides a comprehensive approach to helping people with MS maintain their health and well-being. We offer programming and support to keep them self-sufficient and their homes safe, while our educational programs heighten public awareness and promote understanding about the disease. Our resources assist people who have MS, their families and caregivers, regional support groups, and healthcare professionals. Our priority is to serve with empathy, resourcefulness and responsibility. All MS Focus services, as well as information, literature and subscriptions to our publications are provided free of charge. The Foundation neither sells memberships nor requires participation in fund-raising activities by individuals or support groups.

Results: The outcome measures surveys our clients take show that we are making a significant difference. For example, 96 percent of applicants say the need their application addresses affects their quality of life "quite a bit" or "very much." After receiving services, 98 percent of respondents said the help they received from MS Focus improved their quality of life. We continue to look to the people with MS as our guides, expanding or improving our services as the needs of the MS community change. Working together, we say "Let's Find Better Days."

I would have been homeless and with no access to meds were it not for the intervention of the MSF. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.These people really care with no strings attached and no pressure to fundraise.
