The Epilepsy Foundation Western/Central Pennsylvania (EFWCP) is a private, non-profit service organization providing public education and supportive services to individuals and families affected by epilepsy/seizure disorders. Our mission is to lead the fight to stop seizures, find a cure and overcome challenges created by epilepsy.
With offices and staff in Pittsburgh, Harrisburg and Johnstown, the EFWCP now offers its nationally recognized programs and services to residents in 49 counties throughout western and central Pennsylvania.
The work of the EFWCP is supported through private donations, a variety of grants and a contract with the Pennsylvania Department of Health, as well as special fundraising events.
With support from a volunteer Board of Directors and Professional Advisory Board that provides medical expertise, the EFWCP works to ensure an improved quality of life for those who face the challenges presented by epilepsy or seizure disorders.
The EFWCP was founded in 1972 and in 2012 celebrated 40 years of growth and success. We are an independently incorporated affiliate of the Epilepsy Foundation National.
