Family and Community Support Services

The Prestera Center Family Support Program is part of a statewide program passed by legislation in March 1991. It is a program designed to assist families with a member with a qualified developmental disability living in their natural home. Family Support was created as a last resort to assist when other resources and programs are not available. The Family Support Program is available regardless of income or the age of the person with a disability. 


Any family who resides in Boone, Cabell, Clay, Kanawha, Lincoln, Logan, Mason, Mingo, Putnam or Wayne Counties in WV and has a person living in their home that has a developmental disability may be eligible. The applicant must live with family members (no group homes or hospitals).
