Support The Howard I. Abrams In-Home Care Program

Paul Fierro with Josie, his in-home caregiver.
Josie has dramatically helped to improve quality of life for Paul and his wife Kim.

Paul and Kim Fierro share a solid foundation of love and strength. This gives them comfort and assurance as they contend with the challenges of Paul's ALS.

Paul and Kim have often shared how important the Chapter's Howard I. Abrams In-Home Care Program is to them, as it is to many other families impacted by ALS. The program provides ALS families with in-home care up to 12 hours each week at no cost for tasks such as bathing, dressing, meal prep, and feeding.

Caregiving is difficult both emotionally and physically, but thanks to the Abrams Program Paul receives exceptional personal care provided by his aide, Josie. Josie's presence helps both Paul and Kim, allowing Kim to take a much-needed break and have peace of mind that Paul is in great hands.
