“Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Being together is success.”

Individualized and specialized services to meet the needs of children, youth and adults with an intellectual and developmental disability (IDD), children with complex medical conditions (CCMC) and adults with physical and developmental disabilities (APDD), as well as to support families/ caregivers.

Services include:

IN-HOME SUPPORT
In-home support is a service for individuals under the age of 18 and is based on the needs of each family. Care is done in the family home where providers work on goals set in each person’s plan of care–focusing on areas such as self-help, communication and motor skills.

SUPPORTED LIVING
Supported living is a service for individuals 18-years old and above with the goal of helping each individual develop independent living skills. The focus of supported living is to teach skills that foster independence, such as hygiene, household maintenance skills and access to community resources.

RESPITE CATE
Respite care provides an opportunity for parents and guardians to take a break from the physical and emotional toll that often accompanies caring for a loved one with a developmental disability. Care is provided in the family home or at FRA’s day respite facility.

SPECIALIZED FAMIY HABILITATION
Family habilitation provides specialized foster-care or assisted living placement for children and adults with an Intellectual and Developmental Disability (IDD), Children with a Complex Medical Condition (CCMC) and Adults with a Physical and Developmental Disability (APDD).
