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.

Temporary care that provides relief for permanent care givers. It can be offered for a few hours, a weekend or overnight. The Arc screens and trains respite providers so families can utilize this program knowing their family member is properly cared for.
Self-Hired Respite allows families with children to use the care giver of their choice to provide respite care. Families are reimbursed as the Department of Children and Families contract allows.
As a Support Coordination agency we facilitate charting the path to the desired outcomes, work in partnership as a team, coordinate supports and monitor the progress to a successful and meaningful life.
We currently provide support for Monmouth, Atlantic and Burlington counties as a self-approving agency for the Individual Service Plan. Call the Support Coordination team at 732-363-3335 x138 for more information.
