Project AbleProject Able provides culturally competent family support services to Chinese and Vietnamese individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities and their families in the Greater Boston and South Shore areas. Project Able aims to develop each family's capacity to meet the needs of their family member within their own community. Our greatest accomplishment has been our success in overcoming linguistic and cultural barriers in order to help families get the care they need. For more information, download our printable brochure or contact the Project Able Office at 617-988-8132.
Supported Home CareAdvocates' Supported Home Care program provides compensation and support to family members or other caregivers who provide live-in care to indiviiduals who qualify. Supported Home Care supports MassHealth-eligible individuals who, because of medical, physical, cognitive, or psychiatric problems cannot safely live alone. In addition to compensation, caregivers receive respite and relief services, social work assistance, nursing support, 24-hour emergency care, and connection to community resources.
