Family Support

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

In order to provide the best service possible, Envision hosts Quarterly FSSP Council Meetings. If interested in joining, please contact Vicky Jacobson at 970-313-2606 or vjacobson@envisionco.org.

We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy as we begin 2022! Clinicians from the University of Colorado have received funding from the Association for University Centers on Disabilities and Centers for Disease Control to share information related to the COVID-19 vaccine. We are hoping you would be willing to complete a brief survey (link is below!) to support us in understanding what concerns different areas in Colorado may have regarding the COVID-19 vaccine. The survey is available in English and Spanish. To be clear, this survey is not a way to force or coerce anyone into becoming vaccinated against COVID-19 and it is completely voluntary to complete. We are genuinely interested in understanding potential concerns related to receiving the vaccine and would be more than happy to provide information to those interested in receiving the initial two doses of the vaccine and/or the booster dose. Sincerely, Patrick Romani, Ph.D., BCBA-D
