The Mid America Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society began in 1955 as the Kansas City Chapter with one staff member working out of his home. By 1982, the Chapter established the Ozark and St. Joseph branches. In 1985, the name was changed to the Mid America Chapter and in 1990, the Chapter merged with the Eastern Kansas Chapter. In 2010, the remaining counties of Kansas were consolidated with the Mid America Chapter. In 2011, the Chapter joined forces with the Nebraska Chapter. The Chapter, including the Ozark, Nebraska and Wichita offices, currently serves 253 counties in Kansas, Western Missouri, Nebraska and Pottawattamie County. The Mid America Chapter offers programs and services to more 11,000 individuals living with MS and annually raises nearly $5 million to create a world free of MS.
Mission: We mobilize people and resources to drive research for a cure and to address the challenges of everyone affected by Multiple Sclerosis.
