FAMILY SUPPORT SERVICES

Family Support offers service coordination and financial support to families with an eligible family member of any age living at home. Family Support funds are used to reimburse families for expenses associated with the care of their family member. Horizons receives funding for this program from the state of Colorado and administers the funds to families. Family Support is a payer of last resort.

•  Respite care - temporary care of the individual with the developmental

    specialists

•  Assistive technology - mobility aids, adaptive equipment, communication

    devices

•  Home and vehicle modification - ramps, lifts, widened door frames
