"Do your little bit of good where you are; it's those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world."
- Desmond Tutu

Did you know that an average of 15 people are newly diagnosed with ALS every day? Hope Loves Company strives not only to provide free programming and resources for children and young adults who have had or have a loved one battling the disease, but we strive to educate others and raise ALS awareness.
Help HLC Make a Difference

The Hope Loves Company Documentary

The HLC Documentary is now available to stream on YouTube!

May is ALS Awareness Month. Each day is an opportunity to raise awareness to find a cure, to support people and families affected by ALS, and to be an advocate for the ALS community.

As of May 1st at 12 PM, the Hope Loves Company Documentary is available to stream on our YouTube channel! Directed by award-winning documentarian Steve Besserman, the HLC Documentary begins with the founding of Hope Loves Company and then follows several of the inspirational families it has supported.

Please help bring recognition to this unique group of amazing caregivers by sharing this story of ALS, love, and hope with family and friends.
