Resources for Families

Sometimes just knowing where to start can be hard.

That's why DBHDS created the Individual and Family Support Program (IFSP) to help families and individuals with developmental disabilities find supports and to connect with other families.

IFSP includes the: 

  • Funding Program,
  • Community Coordination Program, 
  • Partnership with Virginia Commonwealth's Center for Family Involvement to provide peer mentoring opportunities for families,
  • Partnership with disAbilityNavigator.
