“My son Christopher has thrived under the Launch program. He is so proud to tell me about his job sites, he particularly enjoys working at the Ninty-Nine Restaurant. He has also developed great friendships. As a parent I feel so fortunate to be a part of South Shore Support Services.”
Family Support Center
The Family Support Center works with outside providers, community resources, and other agencies to provide information, support, and programs to families with individuals with disabilities of all ages.
Individual Home Support (IHS) focuses on assisting individuals to live independently in their homes and communities while leading lives with choice, dignity, and opportunity.
Agency with Choice
Agency With Choice (AWC) or Momentum, is a self- directed model that helps individuals with disabilities to decide how, when, and from whom their services and support will be delivered.
Adult Family Care
Adult Family Care (AFC) provides support—in the form of compensation and training—that enables caregivers to provide valuable support to loved ones with physical, medical, and intellectual disabilities in their home.
The mission of the Launch Program is to empower and encourage self-determination for individuals with disabilities by accessing work and social opportunities in a truly community-based setting.
We offer two models of respite services. Our first model is “Take a Break”, with 4-6 hours of engaging activities where individuals can be dropped off at a designated site. We will also be offering overnight experiences at our Respite apartment where individuals will be socially engaged while gaining skills on how to live independently.
Residential Housing Models
We operate ten traditional 24-hour staffed homes and two homes with less than 24-hour. Non- traditional housing models include new initiatives with private investment community housing.
We are implementing assistive technology where ever possible to help those we support develop even greater sense of independence at home, at work, and in their communities.
