|Home Page||Family Support Services
Our Family Support Services (FSS) Program is available for families of children and youth under the age of 18 (older in certain circumstances) where a child has a diagnosis of a mental or developmental disability, is diagnosed with a serious emotional disturbance, has a learning disability or a behavioral disorder, or a parent or guardian has a psychiatric diagnosis.
We provide a wide range of (no-cost) services to help support the entire family, ranging from a support group for parents, child and family advocacy, and parent empowerment training, to respite care for the children (benefiting the entire family).
We also operate a therapeutic recreation program during the summer for children and youth who cannot be served in a "mainstream" summer camp program. Frequently after one summer in our KIDS FIRST program, children return to their usual academic year programs showing vast improvement in social skills, everyday functioning and their ability to make and keep friendships.
