People with disabilities or medical conditions

Families Matter Co-operative is first of all for and about people with developmental disabilities and their families. We act as a broker and a partner to help families share information and find the services they need to get on with their lives. These include housing, employment and social activities. We are not a social service provider; we work with social service providers to come up with innovative solutions to meet the needs out there.
