We're Here to Help
The Warren County Board of Developmental Disabilities Family Support program assists eligible families by providing them with financial assistance on approved services. These services are ones that meet the special needs of their family member who has the disability, and assists that person towards self-sufficiency. The Family Support program is only open to families whose eligible family member is not enrolled on a Level One Waiver, Individual Options Waiver, SELF Waiver, or an Ohio Home Care Waiver.
What We Can Provide
The Family Support program can provide the following for eligible families:
Respite – from a Family Chosen Provider. If no Family Chosen Provider is available, the family may request a provider search to be completed on their behalf from Certified Waiver Providers.
Daycare or Agency Care
