Family Support Services Program (FSSP)




FSSP is designed to help families maintain a family member with a developmental disability in their home and family unit. Support is provided through State General funding from the State of Colorado that can help pay for Respite, medical supplies not covered by private insurance or Medicaid and extra costs associated to medical care/appointments for the family member with the developmental disability. Additionally, drop-off respite is offered for children (21 or younger) and their siblings to give parents and care-givers a much needed break. The following is a list of eligibility criteria and services offered:
