The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
It is the mission of all Shared Support Maryland, Inc. stakeholders to assist the people it serves to participate in the joys, work and traditions of their chosen community.
Through the Maryland Inclusive Housing and Self Directed Support Networks Collaborative, Shared Support Maryland, Inc. (SSMD) seeks to support a reality for people with developmental disabilities in Maryland by providing outreach, training and resources directly to people with developmental disabilities, service coordinators, families and service providers to help them realize their dream of housing independent of self directed services. As people experience the ability to choose, change their minds & change their courses of action in life, self-directed services becomes an expectation and a way of business for the provider world. As people re-enter the community in natural proportions, inclusion is inevitable.
