FSRC Families Can't Wait

Families Can’t Wait

Over the past 30 years, many programs started by parents to provide family support have become established among the valued long-term care resources available today.

Our Families Can’t Wait campaign began in 1999 to raise funds to provide financial assistance to meet the most urgent needs of waiting families. Since then, we have raised more than $1,000,000 that we have used to help over 700 families purchase disability-related goods and services needed by their children. Families Can’t Wait grants are used to pay for 1 X expenses, such as home and vehicle modifications, adaptive equipment, summer camps, transportation, recreation, medical supplies not covered by MA/insurance, and parent training.
