Family Outreach’s primary purpose is to provide services to children with disabilities and their families and to adults with disabilities. We provide support and education to children and adults, and their families to help keep families intact, prevent out of home placements and when that is not possible, to provide foster placements that support continuing family relationships. Over the years Family Outreach has been very successful in both these areas. Only a very small number of children have been unable to stay with their families and Family Outreach has successfully reunited a number of children with their families.

  • To be eligible for Family Education and Support Services the family must reside in one of the 12 counties served by Family Outreach. The child must also live in either their natural home or a foster home and be between the ages of 0 and 22.
  • Available to both natural and foster families who have a child with a developmental disability. Services (usually provided in the home) include education, support, resources, and service coordination
