Family Support Services
Through money provided by the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities, income eligible individuals and members of their families can access funds for adaptive home improvements or to purchase needed items that promote an independent lifestyle.
Limited funds are available to individuals who need additional residential support and who are not eligible for a Medicaid Waiver. Money can be used to pay a Service Provider to assist with training in the development of personal and independent living skills. The amount of money provided is based on the individual and the level of support needed to promote independence and ensure all health and safety needs.
Through an agreement with the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services and the Ohio Department of DD, Medicaid funds are available to qualifying individuals. Each participant must have a level of care that requires a support system for them to successfully live in the community.
