Family Support Services

Family Support Services help support families with a family member that has an intellectual or developmental disability until that family member is able or chooses to live independently. Services help families meet the many needs of the individual with a disability, minimizing the need and cost of out-of-home placement while enhancing quality of life for all family members.

  • Have been diagnosed with an intellectual or developmental disability since birth or before age 18
  • Have been diagnosed with another intellectual disability since birth or before age 22 and deemed eligible for services
  • Are at risk for being placed in an institution for individuals for with intellectual disabilities if they do not receive services to help them live in the community
