Family Supports

The Family Supports Program offers ongoing services to families and people with disabilities living at home.

Stone Belt is looking toward the future and seeing that families of children and adults with disabilities still living at home are going to be more numerous and more in need of services and supports.

The funding for people has shifted from residential supports, such as group homes and supported living, to Family Support Waivers that support respite, day services, behavior services, therapies, and other non-residential services.

Director hired to build new program to support families

Janessa Gerber, who has provided services to people with developmental disabilities for more than 25 years, started her new position at Stone Belt on March 5. Janessa has most recently worked at LIFEDesigns, overseeing programs similar to those offered at Stone Belt, and also has experience with providing respite services, structured family caregiving, and family-provided direct supports. She has just the experience we need to build on our current family support programs and expand them more rapidly.
