A new 24-hour support line working to help individuals with developmental disabilities and those who care for them cope during the COVID-19 crisis.
The telehealth line is free and available anytime for people with disabilities, their families, caregivers and other members of their support teams across the nation. Developed by The Arc of California and the Stony Brook University School of Social Welfare, the helpline is staffed by graduate students at the school who are supervised by licensed social workers. Callers can expect to receive support, guidance and referrals.
Project Connect is available by calling 888-847-3209.
