Connect with our local chapter:
The Albany Chapter began as the Albany NY, Western Massachusetts and Southern Vermont Affiliate in April 2011.

In June 2016, we bacame the Albany Chapter.

We support anyone affected by HD (patient, caregiver, family, friends, etc.) from the Adirondacks to Westchester County and Utica to Western Massachusetts and Southern Vermont. The majority of our events are in the greater Capital District but we are always exploring new ideas in other areas. It you would like to be a part of our chapter or start an event (support group, fundraising, education day, etc.) in another area, please contact us.
