Our Support Services
When a family receives the diagnosis of ALS, they are faced with an overwhelming array of questions, paperwork, medical advice, financial and logistical challenges, and life-altering changes. Conventional health care does not begin to address the complexity of these needs. This is where MAC Angels Foundation steps in to fill a void in services.
Mark your calendars! The MAC Angels Foundation has a calendar of events throughout the year.
Looking for a way to make a difference? If you are an adult looking to support a valuable cause, or a student in need of community service hours, there are a number of ways for you to get involved and make a significant difference in the lives of ALS families!
What We Do
MAC Angels Foundation provides services and programs to enhance the quality of life for patients, family members and caregivers who are impacted daily by ALS. MAC Angels supports families in a variety of non-medical ways, by providing the compassion, education and unique resources needed to manage the devastating effects of this disease. While we do not have a set menu of services that we offer, we meet with each of our families and explore together how we can help.
MAC Angels operates in the tri-state area: Connecticut, Southeastern New York, and Northern New Jersey. MAC Angels can assist families with anything from medical transportation to caregiver planning to health insurance advice. We recognize that each family is unique and try to meet the needs of each family. MAC Angels partners with dozens of other non-profits, to provide the needed resources for individuals and families living with ALS. Since inception, MAC Angels has helped over 500 families.
