Project FAST (Community/Family Based Grant)
Family Assistant Support Tool

Project FAST was developed to provide support to the family unit of persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities with the goal of enhancing their quality of life and key relationships.

Caswell Center Foundation also assists in providing educational opportunities for professionals in the eastern region including Caswell Developmental Center staff who provide services to individuals with developmental disabilities. The Foundation’s aging workshop series is held in the fall of each year. These types of educational opportunities provide a wealth of knowledge from nationally known speakers that help enhance the quality of care that individuals with developmental disabilities receive. In regard to assisting professionals in the eastern region with education opportunities, in May 2007 Caswell Center Foundation launched its scholarship program.
