Family Support is the home of the Individual & Family Support program in south Alabama.  We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit created in January, 1994.  A new and innovative form of assistance is provided by adults with disabilities and their families.  We help families in south Alabama help themselves, and do so by offering emotional support, information, referrals, flexible financial assistance, and special project assistance, all provided through local area volunteer councils.  An area council member must be an adult with a disability or a family member of a child with a disability.  This, then, results in a very unique low-cost resource for families that uses the wisdom gained by real-life experience to help others facing many of the same issues.
