Family Support Services
Family Support Services builds partnerships with families, individuals and rehabilitation staff that enhance support systems and increase quality of life. The purpose of Family Support Services is to prepare individuals and their families for life’s transitions by developing a plan that will support them through planned and unexpected life changes. Our philosophy is that having a plan in place provides peace of mind by preventing crises from happening, providing a safety net if a crisis does arise, and preparing families to better respond to difficult transitions.

- Helping families maintain their person’s records of needs and resources
- Resource linkages
