Family Support

Family Support

The WV Family Support Program began in 1991 as a result of legislation passed by the WV Legislature. The program is available in every county and provides individual services and supports to families who have a person with a developmental disability living at home.

Family Support provides limited funding to buy needed services and goods that cannot be purchased through other sources and provides information to assist in finding services and maximizing community resources. See the links below for more information about the Family Support program and download the application HERE.

Automated Appointment Reminders

Southern Highlands is excited to announce that effective Friday June 23,2017 we will be utilizing an automated call/ text service to remind consumers of your upcoming appointments. You will receive a call or text three days prior to your appointment and another reminder one day before your scheduled appointment. The service will provide prompts if you need to cancel or re-schedule your appointment. The first time receiving a text message you will be prompted to opt in authorizing text reminders. Please make sure the front desk or your case manager has your correct phone number.
