Hope Loves Company is the only 501(c)3 nonprofit in the U.S. dedicated to providing emotional and educational support to children and young adults who have or had a loved one battling Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) or Lou Gehrig's disease. HLC founder Jodi O’Donnell-Ames, HLC president Gary Bachrach, and their team have hosted 46 Camp HLCs across the nation since 2012.

O’Donnell-Ames has three children – now all young adults – who have lost a parent to ALS before turning 12, so she knew from personal experience how ALS affects a family, especially children.
