Description of Services

Disability affects families from all walks of life. The families we serve vary greatly in their circumstances, in their resources, andin their ability to cope with the extra responsibilities placed on them. What families do have in common is the need for flexible and individualized assistance that will help keep them connected to their community, hopeful about the future, and supported in managing the extra stresses and expenses. Because disabilities are not typically cured and their impact often increases over time, most families we serve need long-term supports.Family Support staff work with families to:Understand and gain access to available resourcesCoordinate services, advocate for the child and facilitate teamwork and problem-solvingPurchase needed goods and services not available through other funding sourcesHelp families to build and strengthen networks of supports, to encourage friendships for their children, and to plan for the future
