What is Family Support Services?
Family Support Services is a program designed to assist families who are caring for a family member with a disability, when that person resides in their home. Reimbursable services and supports through Family Support Services are tailored to the unique needs of the individual. Through FSS you can get information, referrals, respite care, and purchase orders to buy a variety of items.
How do I qualify for Family Support Services?
Anyone who qualifies for services from the Fairfield County Board of Developmental Disabilities, and lives with a family member, can use Family Support Services. A family means parents, brothers, sisters, spouse, children, aunts, uncles, or cousins. Family Support Services cannot be used in Foster Homes.
How much money is available for my family?
The Family Support Services Coordinator can tell you the amount available each year. FSS dollars are affected by the family household federal taxable income.
