Family Support


We're Here to Help


The Family Supports program was developed to provide support to families who are caring for a family member in their home.  The goal is to relieve some of the emotional and financial strains experienced by families, and to enhance harmony within the family unit.  There are no income guidelines to participate, however the individual may not be enrolled on a Medicaid Waiver.  Assistance may be provided in covering some cost of therapy, adaptive equipment, camp, respite, disposable items (after age 3) and special diet needs.

Attend a free orientation to learn more about the Family Support program:

Four times per year, the Warren County Board of Developmental Disabilities offers a free orientation training for families who would like to learn more about the Family Support program. The orientation is open to families who are already enrolled in the program and would like to learn more about the benefits available, and how to complete the required paperwork. It is also open to families wanting to learn how to enroll in the program. Families must register in advance, and childcare will not be provided.
