Family Support Services (FSS)
The Family Support Services (FSS) program enables families enrolled to provide for the needs of a child with developmental disabilities living at home. This is flexible program that allow for services to be tailored to the specific need of each family. The program provides an array of services and assistance, based on each family’s unique needs that are provided to families with children who have developmental disabilities.
FSS are based on the belief that all children belong with families where they are loved and cared for. These supports meet every day needs and are often critical in avoiding family crises that become much more costly, both emotionally and financially.
When a child or family in our community experiences crisis, we provide services, resources, education and support, with care, empathy and understanding. As the lead child welfare agency in Pasco and Pinellas counties, and in partnership with community-based organizations, we improve the circumstances and outcomes for families, provide safe homes for abused and/or neglected children and teens through foster care, and find forever families for children through adoption
