Family Support Program
The Family Support Services Program is a state funded program that provides individualized support to families who are caring for a family member with developmental disabilities or delays with costs that are beyond those normally experienced by other families. This long-running state-funded program provides individualized support to families who are caring for a family member up to 18 years of age with intellectual or developmental disabilities or delays (Individuals 18 and over qualify for Medicaid Waiver programs administered by DP’s Case Management Department). The emphasis on the needs of each family makes this a unique and incredibly relevant service. Family Support Funds can be used toward respite for the family, professional services such as home health or therapy services, medical or dental services, transportation, assistive technology, home modification, and parent and sibling support.
