Disability Information Resource/INDEX


  • Overview of Organization and Services:
    A service of the Eunice Kennedy Shriver Center, INDEX is one of four organizations that form the Massachusetts Developmental Disabilities Network. The network promotes self-determination, independence, productivity, integration and inclusion in all facets of community life for people with developmental disabilities and their families.

    On its DisabilityInfo.org website, INDEX provides, to the public, free information up-to-date information about programs, agencies, physicians, consultants, and dentists serving people with disabilities in Massachusetts. The network partners accomplish this mission through advocacy, education, research and dissemination of information.

    INDEX is comprised of two parts: a comprehensive information resource of programs and services for people with disabilities in Massachusetts; and a technology-development group that offers solutions for government and nonprofit organizations nationwide.

    INDEX helps people with disabilities find the information they need. We collect and keep up-to-date information on programs, providers and services in Massachusetts that have something to offer to people with disabilities.

    INDEX recognizes that accurate information is a basic prerequisite for making informed decisions. We use our expertise in information technology, our experience in the field of disabilities, and our long history of collaborating with disability-related, non-profit and state agencies to provide people with disabilities and their families the necessary information they need to maximize their independence and productivity in our community.
