Established in 1978, Durham Association for Family Resources and Support (DAFRS) was incorporated as a non-profit charitable organization in 1982. It is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors who are elected by a membership of families, volunteers and interested citizens.
DAFRS works in partnership with families with a member who has an intellectual disability or a child with a physical disability, providing family support (services, resources, and other types of assistance) that enhance the capacity of the whole family to care for one another and to sustain and/or enhance their valued social roles as family members and as members of the community.
