The Capital Area Parkinson’s Society (CAPS) was founded in 1984 to address the needs of people with Parkinson’s disease, their families, friends and carepartners.
Our mission is to address the needs of persons with Parkinson’s disease, their carepartners, and the public, by providing education, current information regarding research and resources, social interaction and emotional support.
You can also make a generous donation at any time. All proceeds directly benefit the programs and services that CAPS provides to the community.
