Mission and Goals

Smile Inside's mission is simple: to bridge accessibility and geographic gaps and administer quality, free, and accessible social services to pALS and their families in need, as evidenced by:


  1. Providing online counseling services using Zoom Telehealth technology either by video or chat;
  2. Magnifying self-determination for medical care through education, information, and counseling;
  3. Advocating and raising awareness for social justice and positive social change surrounding access to healthcare, life-sustaining treatment and medical research; and
  4. Conducting research projects that intend to inform clinical social work interventions and improve outcomes

Vision

Although in its infancy, Smile Inside envisions itself to become a leading social work agency serving ALS patients and their families throughout the United States.  Smile Inside intends to collaborate with social workers from multidisciplinary clinics throughout the country as a way to bridge the geographical gaps often separating pALS from regular and affordable social services.
