The Tennessee Family Support Program local Council District 9 sponsored a car wash and vendor fair at Southbrook Mall on May 12, 2018. It was the local council’s annual fundraiser. The program provides support to people with disabilities and assistance to family members caring for loved ones.
Assistance is available to people unable to meet their needs for minor home and vehicle modifications, respite care, specialized equipment and related disability supports through other agencies, organizations, or funding sources. Family Support is a state of Tennessee program, administered in the Shelby and Fayette Counties by SRVS. Funds from the car wash will provide assistance to families who care for loved ones with disabilities, have significant needs and currently waiting for state funding.
