Helping families with children who have developmental disabilities.
We have been in this business a long time and we see the invisible world of families raising children with special needs. Our goal is to help make this world more visible to others, by fostering understanding of the real needs of these families and by creating viable solutions for them. Our vision is to live in a world where everyone has access to the assistance they need.
LBSA is available to assist families as they navigate the world of raising their special needs child and, in turn, ensuring the successful future of their special needs adult. We help people make connections in a way that is comfortable, respectful, practical and sustainable. We consider ourselves “matchmakers,” bringing together volunteers with the necessary time and energy and enthusiasm to offer with those families and individuals in need.
Monthly Respite Care Events
Family Support Services offers respite services for families raising children with developmental disabilities. Children and youth ages 5 to 21 receive personalized invitations to theme-based activities and monthly events designed to provide a few hours of respite to caregivers. Families may choose volunteer-based in-home respite as well.
2013 Summer/Fall Calendar:
Second Saturdays, 3-5 pm
We ask that families RSVP in advance. So that we can better ensure a fun and safe environment with individualized care, parents need to fill out the enrollment form found on this page. There is a $5 per child fee for each event.
