Welcome to South Shore Support Services, Inc.

South Shore Support Services, Inc. is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to providing supports to people with developmental disabilities. We serve people from all segments of the community and do so in a manner that respects cultural diversity.

Our Mission

South Shore Support Services, Inc. is guided by the belief that the individuals we support are the directors of their plan for support services. To that end, the agency works to empower each person to make informed life choices. We support the individual's pursuit of a quality of life, which is free from self-imposed and/or external barriers. The satisfaction of the people we serve is the primary measure of our success.


Description of Agency

To respond to the unique needs of the individuals we serve, we take an innovative and creative approach. We listen to each person's thoughts, desires and wishes; and then work with the individual and his or her indentified family members to design a support plan that puts into place the funding and services needed. To respond to the unique needs of our constituency, we must be innovative and creative. We must design the services from the individual's viewpoint. We must fully listen to his/her thoughts, desires and wishes. We, then, work with the individual and his/her family to obtain supports that meet their needs. We realize that people and life situations change and services need to evolve to accommodate that change.
