Innovative Services

Shared Support Maryland, Inc. provides support through person directed planning and organizational change to people with all levels of disability. Shared Support Maryland, Inc. provides a wide range of personalized supports and service to people that include those that, perhaps, are typically referred to as people with severe or profound disabilities. Regardless of disability, people have the right to the quality of life that they define. Through Shared Support Maryland, Inc. those that are paid by them help them to obtain it.

SSMD does not operate day programs, sheltered workshops or group homes. People choose their living situations, roommates and staff. People choose what they would like to do during the day, evening and weekend. This makes planning and implementation difficult at times and in the long run – people satisfied with their lives and the support they pay for.
