Family Support

The Family Support Program is a State funded program that provides funds and services to families enabling them to care for and keep their child with a disability at home.

The Program Offers:
  • Information and help in finding services and maximizing community resources
  • Limited funding to buy needed services and goods that can't be bought through other sources
  • Help in linking families with other families to strengthen natural supports
Once eligibility is determined, a Service Coordinator schedules a home visit with the family. Together, they develop a service plan that addresses the family's unique situation, identifies support needs and sets outcome priorities.


Families are eligible for services if they have a child with a severe disability who is under the age of 21, attending school and living at home. Although family income is not a basis for eligibility, cost sharing may be required on a sliding fee scale. The application process includes an eligibility determination and a needs assessment.

Because each County has limited funding for the program, eligibility does not guarantee a family will receive services. Agencies may have waiting lists for services and assessments.
