Delaware CarePlan's mission is to enhance the quality of life for individuals with disabilities by providing lifelong planning services, financial security, and support services to individuals with disabilities beyond their basic care.
The organization was created as the result of Delaware legislation enacted to allow a person with a disability to establish a special needs trust without jeopardizing critical government benefits, but rather supplement and augment those services.
Representatives from Delaware CarePlan are often out in the community, sharing the value of planning ahead for those with special needs in a way that will protect their eligibility for government benefits.

Mental illness affects 1 in 5 adults. NAMI-Delaware does an excellent job of supporting, educating, and advocating on behalf of Delawareans with severe and persistent mental illness.
Thank you, NAMI-Delaware, for moving us a step closer to Mental Health for All!
