How are the funds used?

All local funds are used for outreach, education, support, and respite care for the Parkinson community in Minnesota and surrounding states.  NPFM funds Park Nicollet Struthers Parkinson’s Center, the Capistrant Center for Parkinson’s disease, and other organizations with trained professionals to deliver outreach, education, and support group leadership training.  NPFM funds families needs directly through the Respite Care Grant program.
