Frequently Asked

Most of the people NuPath supports age out of the educational system at 22 years old. This transition from the place you have known for years and leaving school system can be daunting. You’re not alone! This is a major life transition for us all and NuPath is here to help. We can guide you through the various options for adult services and possible ways to access funding to support your adventure. The Massachusetts Department of Developmental Services (DDS) also offers supports and information regarding turning 22 here: https://www.mass.gov/dds-turning-22-services. One recommendation: start the process early and plan a transition that makes sense for you!

NuPath is accepting referrals for Day Services in all locations. Contact us today and we will help you explore your options and identify the best match for you. Openings in Residential Services are limited, but please check in – we have an experienced team that can assist and advise. If we do not have an opening for you, we can help navigate the process through state and other providers that might be a good match for you.

The Department of Developmental Services (DDS) is the main referral and funding source for the people we support. Other funding sources include the Division of Medical Assistance/Medicaid, the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission and on rare occasions, people supported, and their family will privately pay for services. Typically, there are not out of pocket costs for the person served or their family. In residential settings, most costs are funded. However, each person pays a service fee that covers a portion of rent, food, and utilities that is calculated based on the person’s financial abilities. For further questions about costs and funding, contact our team today!

NuPath supports people generally over the age of 22 living with intellectual disabilities and/or developmental disabilities. If you meet those criteria, you are eligible for services from NuPath. A good place to start the process of eligibility for state funded services is through this Department of Developmental Services (DDS) link: https://www.mass.gov/dds-eligibility-services. Here you will find out how to apply and how they determine if you are eligible.

In most cases, a state-assigned Service Coordinator will formally send your referral to NuPath. You can locate your area office here: https://areaofficelocator.dds.state.ma.us/Home/LookupByCity.

Yes, we would be thrilled to meet you, answer all your questions and arrange an in-person or virtual tour in the near future. During these unprecedented times of the COVID-19 Pandemic, we are limiting visitation to certain locations and asking that all visitors wear a mask, take their temperature upon arrival, and attest to their health status. If visiting in person does not work for you, we will provide a virtual tour with one of our program directors.
