With Ice Bucket Challenge funding, The ALS Association Greater Chicago Chapter was able to increase funding support of our Certified Treatment Centers of Excellence at the University of Chicago Medical Center and the University of Illinois – Chicago Medical Center. We were able to invest in our Care Services Programs including the Respite Grant program, Augmentative Speech Program and Adaptable Equipment Programs. We were able to add a full time Care Services Coordinator position to support the expanding population of individuals living with ALS in Central Illinois we are serving.
Many thanks to everyone who donated to the Ice Bucket Challenge, and who continue to support our mission. We could not do this without you!
