who we are

About MassFamilies

(formerly MFOFC)

We are a statewide, grassroots coalition of individuals with disabilities and/or chronic illnesses and their families. We believe that supports for individuals and families can be more flexible and better designed to respond to the actual needs people have. We are actively organizing families and individuals to use the power of our numbers to effect positive change.

We are the people who understand most deeply how effective services can assist in helping individuals with disabilities to achieve the best within themselves. We also understand how inclusive communities benefit us all. We have joined together and “organized for change.”

Our Mission

To provide sustained advocacy and leadership training in pursuit of high quality, individualized community support and service options, including family support, for people with disabilities and their families.

Our vision

Our vision is one of empowerment for individual and family support that includes planning, choices and decision-making.

Leadership Training for a World Where Everyone Belongs

What We Do

MassFamilies provides information, leadership training and support to families, and also has regular regional meetings for families and individuals. Each region of Massachusetts has representation at the statewide Steering Committee.

Members of MassFamilies have written and passed legislation to create statewide policy and practice for individual and family support. We have sponsored various conferences, workshops and forums to inform and educate individuals, families and community members about advocacy, services and local, state and federal resources.
