Directories of New York Family Support Services


Also known as Family Support Guides, these directories list services available for people with a developmental disability and their families. In order to use many of these services, the person with a developmental disability must live with their family in the county the service is offered. These guides are put together by the Developmental Disabilities Councils in each county.
