First In Families of the Southern Piedmont

We serve as the housing agency for a local FIF chapter. First In Families (serving Union, Cabarrus, Stanly, Rowan, and Davidson counties) is a family support initiative operated by a family/consumer management team, providing supports to people with intellectual/developmental disabilities and their family member(s). We have the funding and ability to provide small grants (as our funds and policies allow) to qualifying individuals to distribute funds for specialized therapies, activities for health and wellness, home modifications or repairs to accommodate special needs, special equipment requests, or non-covered medical needs. We also leverage these dollars so that this becomes an initiative to empower, not enable, our community. For information, please call Cindy at 704-261-1550 x 204.
