Support Planning
Center staff is available to provide individualized guidance, support, and problem-solving assistance with respect to all of the above topics, as well as help families access and coordinate community and government resources and services. We believe that the families we support are the foremost experts on their lives and we work in partnership with each family to respond and design supports specific to your needs, goals and wishes. Assistance may be provided on a long or short-term basis depending on the unique circumstances and the complexity of the issues involved.

Navigating “the system” can be overwhelming and at times frustrating especially when you’re dealing with the many stresses in caring for a family member with disabilities or serving as guardian. Let us take some of the pressure off of you and together we can develop a support plan that best meets the needs of your family.

Note: Individuals must first be determined eligible for services by the Department of Developmental Services (DDS) in order to receive support planning and ongoing assistance.
