The Family Support Services Program (FSSP) provides support for families who have children with intellectual and developmental disabilities or delays with costs that are beyond those normally experienced by other families. The primary purpose of the FSSP is to support children with intellectual and developmental disabilities or delays remaining within their family setting and prevent out-of-home placements.
Any individual with an Intellectual and Developmental Disability (IDD) or Developmental Delay living with their family is eligible for the FSSP.
If customers can’t find it, it doesn’t exist. Clearly list and describe the services you offer. Also, be sure to showcase a premium service.
Equipment needed to support the person with a disability. Examples include: wheelchairs, braces, special beds, switches, communication devices, glasses, hearing aids, special kitchen appliances, and vehicle modifications to enable access by the family member with a developmental disability.

The Family Support Council is an advisory committee comprised of family members who have someone with an Intellectual or Developmental Disability living in the home, and community partners who provide input and oversight for the implementation of our Family Support Services program. This council gathers to understand available resources, explore state and local influences on FSSP, meet other families, and have a voice in decisions affecting FSSP.
