Support Services

JM Murray understands that individuals with developmental disabilities and their families may require a great deal of assistance. Whether you need help with finances, medical care, respite care, therapy services, obtaining employment, achieving self-sufficiency, or just navigating the confusing network of programs and services, there are many supports available to individuals and families.

Family Support Services

Are you caring for a loved one with developmental disabilities within your home? Family Support Services (FSS) can provide support and assistance. In order to ensure your family member is receiving the best and most appropriate care, the services are customized to meet the needs of your family member. A variety of support services are available, such as medical care not covered by insurance, assistance with utility payments, food, clothing, furniture, recreational activities, safety devices, adaptive equipment, and other items not provided through any other funding source.

Individual Support Services

Do you have a loved one with developmental disabilities who is living alone and trying to make ends meet? Individual Support Services (ISS) is available to help people who live on their own, rather than in a group home or with a family member. The program is designed to help your loved one maintain their independent lifestyle with assistance offered in the form of rent and/or utility stipends, to be combined with their income. ISS also offers assistance with one-time expenses such as moving, basic and necessary furniture, household goods, and a security deposit, to help your loved one gain an independent lifestyle.
