With over 50 million Americans living with disabilities, our work is far from complete. We encourage you to help us call attention to the experience of people with disabilities, and to raise awareness of and advocate for the services they need to live, learn, work and play in their communities.
Family Support is a broad based category that serves children and adults, ages 3 and up, who have intellectual/development disabilities and autism. The goal of family support is to keep families together, until the individual with a disability chooses to live independently.
