About this Chapter


The National MS Society helps each person affected by MS in our area address the challenges of living with MS. We help by raising funds for cutting-edge research, driving change through advocacy, facilitating professional education and providing programs and services that empower people with MS and their families to move their lives forward.

Our staff and volunteers are dedicated to achieving a world free of MS. Through our chapter’s support services and educational programs for people living with MS and their families and friends, we help connect people in our local communities who want to do something about MS now.

  • We offer many programs — including professional counseling and peer facilitated support groups, educational programs and seminars, referrals to neurologists and healthcare professionals, national teleconferences and internet programs, services for the homebound, and social and recreational programs to assist people with MS and their families in leading productive and fulfilling lives.
  • Our community support helps to fund our local programs and accelerate worldwide research projects to ensure no opportunity is wasted. Generosity can come from anywhere. We are thankful to our members and their friends, corporate partners and the general public who help us raise the money to move us closer to a world free of MS.

About the Greater DC-Maryland Chapter

The Greater DC-Maryland Chapter, established in 1955, is a leader in its contributions to funding for the Society's research initiatives. The Chapter also provides services to the more than 15,000 people affected by MS in its service area covering Maryland, Northern Virginia, and Washington, D.C. All of this is possible through the generosity of the numerous members, staff, volunteers, donors and event participants at the Greater DC-Maryland Chapter.

We are a movement by and for the people with MS. Together we are the MS movement. We mobilize people and resources to drive research for a cure and to address the challenges of everyone affected by MS.
