Our Vision is: A World Free of MS!
Until that is our reality we will relentlessly pursue our mission: To mobilize people and resources to drive research to stop the progression of the disease, restore function that's been lost and end the disease forever.
At the Society’s Northern California Chapter, our emphasis is wellness. The Chapter is committed to the empowerment of people with MS, their families, friends, significant others, and all people affected by MS. We are committed to honoring and supporting the independence and self-sufficiency of people with MS by providing accurate and timely information, advocacy, material assistance, and emotional support. We are committed to dislodging prejudices, increasing understanding, and expanding the awareness of MS and issues of disability in ourselves and in other people. While visiting our site, please learn about our wide range of programs and services for families faced with MS.
The Chapter was chartered in 1954, and presently has four offices to serve you. We are the local resource for more than 12,000 people with MS in a 40-county area. The Chapter is governed by a local board of trustees. We believe in a partnership between staff and volunteers, so our staff works closely with a network of people committed to fighting MS.
