Our Family Support Center offers a wide array of supports in the home and in the community for adults and children with disabilities living with their families. These services may include respite, recreational activities, provision of adaptive equipment, skill training, and intensive staff support when necessary.
The primary goal of the Family Support Center is to enable people with disabilities to stay together with their families and to be welcomed, contributing members in their community. We help parents and caregivers provide assistance in their own home for a child or relative with an intellectual and/or developmental disability. Our program provides the individualized resources necessary to support each family’s efforts.
Funding for the program is provided by the Massachusetts Department of Developmental Services (DDS). The Center is available to any family that has a member living in the home who is eligible for services through DDS and resides in the Central Middlesex area. The cities and towns we serve are: Acton, Arlington, Bedford, Boxborough, Burlington, Carlisle, Concord, Lexington, Lincoln, Littleton, Maynard, Stow, Wilmington, Winchester, and Woburn. However we welcome any individual who wants to participate in our clubs, classes or events.
