Personal Assistance Services:
Individual Respite Case and Direct Care Staff
We provide trained personal assistants and caregivers to work in the service recipient's home, allowing the family to experience a respite from that family member.
We hold 10 recreational retreats throughout the year for our service recipients. The goal of these retreats is to build self-esteem and socialization skills which help our clients throughout the year.
Every summer, we hold two week-long residential camps for our service recipients. This camp is tailored to provide everyone with a positive experience through activities, arts & crafts, sports, and visits from very special guests.
FSSA (Families/School System Advocacy) Services
FSSA is for parents of children, ages 3-21, who need advocacy assistance to receive appropriate educational services from the local school system. The advocate helps parents understand their rights and assists them in resolving special education disputes or disagreements with the school systems.
