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 eligible families who need extra funds to help pay for items and services for their family member with special needs.

What

We provide 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 by clicking the link below.

Who

We have services that are available to families with an individual with an intellectual or developmental delay or disability who: lives at home and resides in Boulder or Broomfield counties.

When

Our fiscal year runs July 1st – June 31 st.  Grant applications are automatically sent to eligible families at designated times throughout our fiscal year.

How

To apply for a FSSP grant, eligible families must fill out a most in need survey and provide proof of citizenship upon request. Once the family support team receives a completed Most In Need Survey, and citizenship verification, a grant application will be mailed during one of three designated grant runs throughout the year.
