ALS Association, Massachusetts Chapter; Tom Thompson, Director
The Massachusetts Chapter of the ALS Association was founded on January 27, 1990, to serve the needs of those living with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and their caregivers. We offer more than a dozen free services for patients and their families, including respite care, equipment loan, a children's program and support groups.
The ALS Association is the only national not–for–profit health organization dedicated solely to the fight against ALS. ALSA covers all the bases — research, patient and community services, public education, and advocacy — in providing help and hope to those facing the disease.
The ALS Association (National Office and the Massachusetts Chapter) operates under a shared mission: to help people living with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and to leave no stone unturned in search for the cure.
We work together to accomplish our mission. The Massachusetts Chapter focuses primarily on helping local patients and families live with ALS while the National Office focuses primarily on research and advocacy. The Chapter supports the National Office through revenue sharing and research contributions. The National Office supports the Chapters by providing up–to–date information and materials. Our commitment to both helping people living with ALS and their families, and funding research worldwide is spoken emphatically through our Chapter slogan: Providing care today. Supporting hope for tomorrow.
Science Club for Girls Cambridge Chapter, Christine Frieze, Accountant
Science Club for Girls was founded in 1994 as a grassroots organization by parents in Cambridge, Massachusetts who were concerned with issues of gender equity in math, science, and technology. SCG brings women scientists and girls together in free after–school science clubs that focus on scientific and technical skills and education. The clubs give young girls an opportunity to get involved in science and engineering activities in a fun, nurturing, interactive environment, an opportunity they might not otherwise receive.
