For Family


Career Resources provides family support services.  The nature of these services varies to meet the needs of specific families, all of whom have a loved one with a disability.  In some cases, we provide representative payee services, helping families and individuals to manage their social security benefits and personal finances.  We help other families by dispersing money that can be used to purchase services or adaptive devices.
