Since forming in 2012, the ALS Association of Texas has dedicated itself to serving and supporting Texans living with ALS. Over time we’ve seen our patient community increase which, in turn, has led to a greater need for our services. This growth inspired a new on-the-ground leadership model in each of our three regions: North Texas, the Greater Houston region, and the Southwest Region. Regional Directors in each region oversee a team of care services professionals, fundraisers, and operational staff, bringing them together to best support patient needs and community fundraising.
The ALS Association of Texas is happy to welcome Paige Ridout as our new Regional Director in the Greater Houston area. Paige is a seventh generation Texan, spending her childhood in Beaumont, Texas. After eighteen years with the FISD Education Foundation, Paige has officially joined the ALS Association of Texas team and we’re so excited to have her on board to further support our mission in Houston and it’s surrounding areas.
Patients all over the state deserve access to resources and care, and we hope to position ourselves to be able to reach those in more rural areas and beyond. We’re striving to provide every Texan living with ALS access to ALS clinics, support groups, durable medical equipment loans and other resources. With this new regional leadership structure in place, we are equipped to grow in our reach and impact. Feel free to send your own personal welcome to Paige at firstname.lastname@example.org with any ideas you’d like to discuss regarding The ALS Association’s work in the Greater Houston area.
