Tennessee Family Support Program

The Tennessee Family Support program is one of Tennessee most respected and widely used programs to serve persons with a variety of disabilities across our state. This program is threatened as long as full funding is not placed in the state’s recurring annual budget. To learn more, go to:

Tennessee Services for Persons with Developmental Disabilities other than Intellectual Disabilities

If you or your family member has a developmental disability, but you do not have a concurrent diagnosis of intellectual disability, you may be aware that Tennessee does not have a coordinated service system in place to serve you. In 2006, the state Legislature appointed a Task Force to review and address this situation. The results of the study are posted at the Fulfill the Promise website:
