Family Support Services
About These Services
Family Support Services consist of services designed to maintain a person with an intellectual/developmental disability in their family home. Typical services include Respite Care, Family Support Subsidy, Family Skill Development and other professional consultation services.
The Agency provides respite care reimbursement to families caring for a child/adolescent with a severe emotional disturbance or an individual with an intellectual/developmental disability. Respite care is furnished on a short-term, intermittent basis because of the absence of natural supports or need for relief of those persons normally providing the care.
