Our History

For more than 25 years, the Parkinson Foundation of the National Capital Area (PFNCA) has been serving those impacted by Parkinson’s Disease.  Today, PFNCA is one of the largest organizations of its kind in the country that provides direct programs and services to people impacted by Parkinson’s Disease.  While over the years PFNCA has been affiliated with different national organizations, today it is independent and focused on providing the best programs and services to improve the quality of life for people facing Parkinson’s.

Recent accomplishments include:

  • 2011: Development of PFNCA’s Medical Advisory Board, which provides input to ensure that the organization’s programs and services are research-based to support those with Parkinson’s.
  • 2014: PFNCA launched its Walk Off Parkinson’s program to raise funds and awareness. 
  • 2014: PFNCA was named one of the best small charities in the Greater Washington Region by the Catalogue for Philanthropy

Today you will find those engaged with our organization having access to some of some of the best educational and support activities available. Our Board of Directors, Medical Advisory Board Members, volunteers and staff are all committed to making a difference in the daily lives of people with Parkinson's Disease.
We look forward to the next chapter in our history, to carrying on the good work of the volunteer leaders before us, and to taking strides to improve the management of this disease.
