Families who receive funding through the Special Services at Home (SSAH) program or Assistance for Children with Severe Disabilities (ACSD) program often wish to hire an in home worker for their child. The worker contracts with the family to provide regular hours of service. During this time the worker spends time with the child to develop skills, build relationships, participate in the community and work on specific goals.
If Family Respite Services is administering the funds for the family we assist the family to recruit a worker. Once the family selects the worker, they become an employee of FRS. A Family Coordinator from FRS provides support and resources to the family and the worker.
