The Center for Family Support Inc. provides home care and residential services for children and adults with disabilities, and their families, in New York City, Nassau, Suffolk, and Westchester counties in New York State and the State of New Jersey. Our programs offer the families of developmentally disabled individuals both in-home care and residential options.



  • Recently, the CFS Community Service Department held a Vision/Story Boarding Event for our community service recipients in celebration of Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month. The individuals who participated were asked thought provoking questions to help inspire them to create a beautiful story board. They were asked to describe themselves, where they see themselves in the future and phrases they are drawn to. Then, they had the opportunity to choose from a variety of magazines, fabrics, paint, pictures and other craft supplies to help them create a board that told their story. The event was facilitated by Debra Powers, CFS Innovative Planning Specialist, and Linda Schellenberg, Director of Community Service. The participants were supported by Direct Support Professionals who worked one-on-one to assist in any way possible.  Click here to see a photo slide show of the event.
