Family Support Services

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.
