Envision’s Family Support Services Program (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 some respite, medical supplies that are not covered by private insurance or Medicaid, and extra costs associated to medical care or appointments for the family member with the developmental disability. Eligibility and is based on a “Most In Need (MIN) Assessment”. Available funds are allocated on a monthly basis and are prioritized by the following needs:
- Major medical or dental needs.
- Transportation (mileage or gas)
- Respite care (typically in-home)
- Health and safety needs
