Over 20,000 families in Massachusetts are caring for loved ones with intellectual and developmental disabilities, including autism. Most of these families have been caring for their loved ones at home since March 2020 and remain vigilant on providing optimal care and comfort. However, families are EXHAUSTED and need continued SUPPORT.
Join the Supporting Families coalition for the annual Supporting Families Advocacy Day. This year's theme is Keeping Families Strong and Resilient.
Event Guest Speaker: Representative Denise Garlick, Vice-Chair of House Ways and Means
Featured Family Keynote Speakers: Sue Crosby and Sagrario Desire Guerrero, Parent Advocates
