Directories of New York Family Support Services


Also known as Family Support Guides, these directories list services available for people with developmental disabilities 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. How the guides are named and updated varies. Links below are to the webpages that each county's guide is on.
