Family Support Services Program
We are the Family Support Services Program at Imagine!. We are here to assist families who provide at-home care to family members with intellectual and developmental delays or disabilities. Our services are designed to ease the financial and emotional strain of having a family member with a disability in the home. Additionally, we provide grants to families who need extra funds to help pay for items and services for their family member with special needs.
What: Access to Family Support Navigators and limited financial support. Families are offered grants based on available funds in a given fiscal year. Family support grants can help pay for the extraordinary costs of caring for a child or dependent with intellectual and developmental delays or disabilities. Grants are distributed at designated times throughout our fiscal year and are based on available funds. A list of approved expenses can be found here.
Who: We have services that are available to families with an individual with an intellectual or developmental disability or delay who: lives at home, is aged 3 and older, and resides in Boulder or Broomfield counties
When: Our fiscal year runs July 1st – June 31st. Grant applications are automatically sent to eligible families at designated times throughout our fiscal year.
