To qualify for Family Support:
Families are eligible for the Family Support Program if they have a child under 21 years of age, who has a significant disability and is living at home in Dane County or returning from an out-of-home placement. Family Support includes a variety of home and community-based supports designed to enhance the quality of life for children with significant disabilities and to keep families together. Based on the belief that each family is unique and that parents are in the best position to know the specific needs of their children and their families, family support services are family-centered and flexible, with parents choosing the assistance they receive.
