Family Support Services/The Parent to Parent Organization

Family Resource funds are allocated by the State of Ohio for use in maintaining individuals affected by developmental disabilities to remain within their family homes. These funds are specifically set aside to assist the family with care and services in areas of Family Respite, Home Modifications, Adaptive Equipment, Special Diets, and Educational Experiences such as camps or training opportunities for both the individual or family members. Eligibility for use of the Family Resources Funds is determined through an application process which includes initial establishment of eligibility for Wayne County Board of Developmental Disabilities Services. Wayne County is unique in that an affiliated Parent to Parent Board is responsible for the use of Family Resource Funds to support this endeavor through the annual Nick Amster Workshop and Ida Sue School Auction.
