AFC is a MassHealth program that allows individuals aged 16 and older who have disabilities to remain in their homes and receive assistance from a parent, sibling or other family member that lives with them. Caregivers receive ongoing support from AFC staff as well as a monthly stipend for their services.

The information session will cover all aspects of the AFC program including: qualification criteria, MassHealth regulations, program eligibility, caregiver responsibilities, requirements for the home setting, and guardianship considerations.

Since 1954, The Arc of South Norfolk has served the towns of Norfolk County and beyond by providing supports to people with developmental disabilities, including autism, through collaboration, advocacy and empowerment. The nonprofit organization serves more than 2,400 individuals from more than 14 communities, including Canton, Dedham, Foxborough, Medfield, Millis, Needham, Newton, Norfolk, Norwood, Plainville, Sharon, Walpole, Westwood and Wrentham.

“Attendees will have the opportunity to join the conversation and ask questions about the program,” said Roger Parks, The Arc of South Norfolk’s AFC director.
