The Alzheimer's Association® is the world's leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer's care, support and research.


As part of a nationwide network of chapters, the Alzheimer's Association National Capital Area Chapter provides help and hope to more than 66,000 people with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias and their families and caregivers in the District of Columbia, five counties in suburban and Southern Maryland and eleven counties in Northern Virginia (see Areas We Serve). For more than 30 years, we have provided reliable information and care consultation; created supportive services for families; increased funding for dementia research; and influenced changes in public policy.

The Alzheimer's Association National Capital Area Chapter is a tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) nonprofit, donor-supported organization. Programs and services are made possible through contributions from individuals, corporations and foundations. Seventy-eight percent of chapter expenditures go toward providing programs and services for the National Capital region.  See our recent annual reports for additional information.
