Family Support Services

Our family support services assist families who are caring for a family member with disabilities. These services promote family unity by enabling people with disabilities to remain at home.

Family Education and Training Series

The Family Education and Training Series (FET) is for families of children with developmental disabilities. These programs are provided through funding of the Home and Community-Based Waiver schedule.  

As defined by the Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD), Family Education and Training may be provided to families of people up to 18 years old who are enrolled in the Home and Community-Based Waiver Program. The purpose of FET is to enhance the decision-making capacity of the family unit, provide orientation regarding the nature and impact of developmental disabilities upon the person and their family and inform them about service alternatives. Additionally, FET will assist the family unit in understanding and nurturing their child with a developmental disability.
