The Alzheimer's Association Greater Missouri Chapter serves 86 counties in Missouri and 10 in Illinois, helping all those facing Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias by providing support groups and educational resources, while advancing crucial research and public policy initiatives. 

Our Mission: To eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.

Our vision: A world without Alzheimer's®.

Our History
Founded in 1981, the St. Louis Chapter started as a support group. Meanwhile, over in Columbia, a group of caregivers gathered to discuss caring for persons with Alzheimer’s disease. Together, they created a support network that grew each year until in 1985 when the Alzheimer’s Association Mid-Missouri Chapter signed an official charter.
Later, the Southwest Missouri Chapter was incorporated in 1987 with a group of volunteers dedicated to reaching out to the needs of people in southwest Missouri trying to cope with Alzheimer's disease. 
After merging Mid-Missouri and the Southwest Missouri chapters in July 2013, the Alzheimer’s Association Greater Missouri Chapter was created and offered services and support to individuals living with Alzheimer’s or a related dementia in central, northeast and southwest Missouri.
On July 1, 2017, the Greater Missouri and St. Louis Chapters combined to make one big chapter, known as Greater Missouri. The newly formed chapter has a service area encompassing 96 counties - 86 in Missouri and 10 in Illinois. The chapter continues to be served by the existing offices and staff in St. Louis, Springfield and Columbia, Missouri. 
Combining staff and resources and building capacity in a vast volunteer base has provided the recently formed Greater Missouri Chapter with increased capacity to reach and serve more people. This has resulted in an expansion of existing services and increased access to additional support and services for families living with Alzheimer’s.
