About the Cause

EFCST Logo 2014-MINI

The Epilepsy Foundation Central & South Texas (EFCST)was founded in 1993 to improve the quality of life of the over 141,000 adults and children with epilepsy and/or seizure disorders in 79 Central and South Texas counties. EFCST was created to put an end to the myths and misunderstandings about epilepsy while helping individuals with epilepsy to improve their quality of life and the opportunity to participate in all life experiences.

Our Mission

The Epilepsy Foundation leads the fight to stop seizures, find a cure and overcome the challenges created by epilepsy.

EFCST is a non-profit, charitable agency, designated as a 501(c)3 organization by the Internal Revenue Service. Donations to the Foundation are tax deductible as allowed by law.  The Epilepsy Foundation Central & South Texas is an affiliate of the Epilepsy Foundation National Office, located in Landover, Maryland.

Since EFCST was founded, thousands of people with epilepsy and their families have received information and/or have benefited from the comprehensive medical, educational, and social services offered by EFCST. Epilepsy affects all aspects of a person’s life. Learning to cope with and manage epilepsy takes a coordinated effort by family, friends, teachers, and managers in the workplace. All of the Foundation’s programs are designed to help people reach their full potential and enhance their sense of self worth.

EFCST staff provides a wide variety of services to persons with epilepsy, their families and the community. At the Epilepsy Foundation, one of our primary goals is to provide accessible, current information about epilepsy/seizure disorders to individuals with epilepsy, parents, family members and friends. We also provide information about epilepsy to professionals in the community through our in-service training programs. Our professionally trained staff is available to answer questions about epilepsy and its related concerns.
