The Human Services Research Institute (HSRI) has established the
National Center for Family Support (NCFS). The NCFS provides training
and technical assistance to 50 sites, all funded by the Administration
on Developmental Disabilities. The training and technical assistance
is designed to share knowledge, promote understanding, encourage
family self-determination, build skills, and facilitate collaborative
problem solving related to policy and practice. One of the publications
is “Essential Features of Family Support Programs,”
a useful document for developing service coordination practices.
