We have raised our membership fees for the first time in 25 years. As of July 1, 2024, an annual Membership Contribution is $40/year for Individuals, and $55 for a Family (two or more related individuals), is requested for membership.  Larger membership contributions help support those who are unable to pay.

If you are unable to afford the Membership Contribution, we offer Courtesy and Reduced Fee memberships.

Your membership supports:

  • Patient Services: Our team provides information about the illness to those newly diagnosed, referrals to healthcare providers, peer-to-peer counseling, and guidance on disability applications

  • Communication: Our monthly email newsletter and alerts cover current news and important development

  • Support Groups: Guided peer support groups are compassionate, caring, and informed environments for discussion

  • Events: Our monthly Sunday Conversations and other events provide essential information and build community

  • Advocacy: We educate and expand awareness both within the community, and with state and federal agencies
