ALS Association of Texas Supports Texans with ALS Following the Winter Storm

by | Feb 23, 2021

Last week, Texas experienced a once-in-a-lifetime winter storm that left millions of Texans without power and clean water. We are thankful that now the worst of the severe winter weather has move on through Texas and hopefully will not return.

The challenges of losing power and water created significant challenges for our ALS Texas family.  If you’re a Texan with ALS that experienced any significant challenges related to this disaster that were and are unsustainable, we are here to help. We have access to a disaster relief fund to help our ALS community with unplanned expenses as a result of the disaster, including but not limited to: 

  • Purchase of generators or other back-up power sources
  • Plumbing issues (busted pipes, flooding)
  • Relocation expenses as a result of power outage (hotel, fuel)
  • Other special equipment you purchased that you would not have purchased outside of the given situation

To apply for assistance, please contact the ALS Association of Texas team member in your area (listed below).

We cannot guarantee that we can address every need, but we will try to help as much as resources allow.
