How You Can Help


Seal graphic

Support for Families is proud to qualify for this seal awarded by Independent Charities of America to organizations that meet or exceed the highest standards of public accountability, program effectiveness, and cost effectiveness. Fewer than 5% of all U.S. charities meet these standards.

Every donation that comes to Support for Families is put to work to help families who have children with special needs and the professionals who work with them. Each year, we summarize our work and accomplishments in an Annual Report. The Annual Report is a great way to see the impact that your donations can make.
