Reviews for Individual & Family Support Of South Alabama
My name is Jenny Oveson, I’m 28 years old, and I was born with Spina Bifida. I wanted to write you to tell you about an organization that has grown to mean so much to me. As a young child, I watched my father make it his mission in life to better the lives of people with disabilities and our families. He is achieving this as Director of Family Support. Family Support, the home of the Individual & Family Support program in south Alabama provides financial assistance for medical, dental, prescriptions, supplies, utilities, food, clothing, housing, holiday gifts, ramps, home modifications/repairs, transportation costs including auto repairs, conference expenses, summer camps, education, respite, recreation, etc. Also information, moral support and referrals may be provided to help families access other programs of assistance. Family Support works to enhance the lives of Alabamians with disabilities and their families. Their success is measured in the number of people they can help with the quality of programs and services they provide. These programs are fueled by our dedicated staff, caring volunteers, and generous donors.
I have a daughter with spina bifida and we have received help from here more than once. They ask you what kind of help you need and are happy to provide whatever they can. We are very grateful to them for their help.

This organization is a nonprofit whose mission is to enhance the lives of Alabamians with disabilities and their families. It is run by volunteer councils that include individuals with disabilities and their family members only. The help provided is very flexible and is governed by what the individual or family feels they need. Funding comes from donations, grants, contracts, and state funding through the Alabama Dept. of Mental Health.

This organization has kept the power on, provided food, paid doctor bills, funded auto repairs, referred families to other local sources of help, and brought emotional support to individuals and families struggling to survive.
