The Greenville Area Parkinson Society (GAPS) is a local non-profit organization that offers support, education, and advocacy to people living with Parkinson’s Disease, their caregivers, spouses, and families. 

Our organization is non-medical and non-research, focusing on individuals with PD and the people in their lives. We know firsthand that they all have unique experiences in living with PD.

“Our mission is to maximize the quality of life for families affected by Parkinson’s Disease.”
