The Children at Home program is designed to assist families in securing the services and supports that they identify as necessary in helping their child to remain at home. An underlying principle of the Children at Home program is that families retain control of decisions, which affect their child and family. Financial assistance is intended to enable families to obtain those services and supports that are not met by other service programs. The focus for funds is to be directed towards health and safety of a child as it relates to their disability.
The Children at Home Advisory Committee will help to steer program policy and spread awareness about the services available through the Children at Home Program. The Advisory group will meet quarterly in January, April, July & October.
Applications for membership may be submitted at any time throughout the year. Upon receipt, applications are discussed within the context of current the Children at Home Program needs. Newly selected members will be notified at least 30 days prior to the next scheduled meeting.
Committee participants may qualify for a stipend for attendance and mileage reimbursement; we’ve enclosed an outline of reimbursement details for participation.
We are very happy to have you consider joining. We hope that, if selected, you will find the experience to be professionally and personally enriching. Please respond to the following questions to help us understand your potential contribution and to help us maintain diversity among our members. Family members who have a child with a disability are strongly encouraged to apply.
