At Focus we take direction from the families we serve. Currently the average age of an individual receiving our services is 15 years old. To accommodate this demographic we have started several programs designed to provide the most meaningful, and age appropriate services we can. This has translated into a summer program for youth ages 8-22 and an afterschool program specifically designed for those youth in middle/high school.

As always we take great care in providing respite, day habilitation and any other services that may be called upon in a child’s waiver. Our care coordination and case management ensures your support is thorough and consistent. If the child does not yet receive Medicaid waiver services we provide other financial supports.

It is important for us as an agency to listen and address the needs of our families. We encourage families to comment on what we are doing and to provide ideas on what we could be doing better. One way of participating in this conversation is to attend our parent support group. This group provides an opportunity for parents to connect with one another and link the knowledge and resources to help all families navigate the system better.
