What We Do

ALS in the Heartland provides immediate help to people with ALS, their families, and caregivers in Nebraska and western Iowa. Free services include respite grants, children funds, education, guidance, support, and equipment loans.

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), commonly referred to as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a rapidly progressive, invariably fatal neurological disease that attacks the nerve cells (neurons) responsible for controlling voluntary muscles. As of today, the cause of ALS is unknown. There are no known preventative measures, and there is no recognized cure.

Interesting Info

All funds raised by ALS in the Heartland remain in Nebraska and Iowa. We are not funded by the National ALS Association.
We've received feedback that 96% of patient families have found ALS in the Heartland services helpful and needed.
Since its founding in 2006, ALS in the Heartland has assisted over 800 individuals with ALS, their families, and caregivers.
