Family Disability Services (FDS) was established in 1981 to provide services for both children and adults with developmental disabilities, as well as offer a support system for their families. Trained providers work with people in their homes or out in the community.
FDS enabled a young girl to become more independent in completing all of her daily activities, helped a man confined to his bed to be free from bed sores and gain a higher quality of life, and provided a single dad with four kids with respite from caring for his 7-year-old son who has severe behavioral issues.

Support Our Work
Help a family raising a child with a disability or a caregiver looking to assist an adult living with a developmental disability. Generous support made it possible for our trained providers to offer nearly 50,000 hours of care last year, and we welcome the opportunity to increase the impact of Catholic Social Services in the community.
In addition to making a financial contribution, providing items from our wish list is a generous gift for our neighbors in need.
