Family Support / Respite

The Home Based Support Services Program for adults and children provides a monthly budget for individuals with developmental disabilities to purchase needed services such as personal support worker services, developmental training, behavior support and transportation. The program also provides access to adaptive equipment and assistive technology, as well as home and vehicle modifications.

The Respite Care Program allows a primary caregiver occasional respite by providing families with up to 180 hours of in-home care annually for their family member with developmental disabilities.

The After-School Respite Program provides group respite for students of the Melvin J. Larson Education Center until 5 pm during the school year allowing parents increased flexibility with after school child care plans.
