Family Support Services
FAMILY SUPPORT provides assistance to families in various ways including in-home and out of home respite, information and referral, advocacy and emotional support. Our Support Coordination service assists families to identify, navigate and locate needed supports and services with the development of the Individual Service Plan. In addition we provide Community Based Support services utilizing staff support to provide one to one assistance, training and supervision to help participants achieve independence in their home and community.
Recreation programs provides individuals opportunities to participate in recreational activities by choice while encouraging health and fitness, friendships, and skill development. The goal of the program is to facilitate an appropriate and active lifestyle for an improved quality of life. Activities include Saturday rec, bowling, club nights, dances, sports, community trips, and parties.
