Parent Resources


A single source, a world of possibilities.

Developed in 2018 through an initiative funded by AWS Foundation, FINDER gives people living with disabilities 24/7 access to a comprehensive range of community resources designed to improve their quality of life.

Service providers, community advocates and medical professionals regularly contribute to FINDER, keeping the information current, relevant and practical. Participation is voluntary, and new information is added regularly. If you notice a resource that benefits the disability community is missing from the site, please contact us. With your help, FINDER will continue to grow and improve.

FINDER supports the right for people of all abilities to freely choose how they wish to live their lives to the fullest. It does not rate or endorse programs, services or organizations. It is up to each individual to decide if a resource fits their unique needs.



Founded in 1960, the mission of AWS is to help children and adults with disabilities live as independently as possible, be included in the community and function at their maximum potential.
Today, AWS, formerly known as Anthony Wayne Services, serves more than 7,000 people in Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, New Mexico and Ohio, providing a vast array of services directly to people with disabilities. Additionally, AWS partners with government in various states to coordinate specific programs and providers.
