Family Resources

Family Resources are provided to support families who choose to keep their family member who has a developmental disability at home.

Respite services, or short-term residential care, are provided for families in their home or at an approved respite facility. Generally, respite care is provided for anywhere from four hours up to two weeks at a time.

Family Resource services also include counseling, parent training, and financial assistance for adaptive equipment such as wheelchair ramps.

Parent/Family Support groups also meet to provide family members with resources, support, or opportunities to provide suggestions regarding the services provided by the Board.
