Family Care

SCO Family of Services is committed to providing a variety of residential supports and services for people with developmental disabilities. Our Family Care program places individuals with developmental disabilities into private homes to provide the caring support, guidance and companionship of a family. Each of our Family Care placements is designed to give the individuals we serve high quality, individualized care that is truly person centered.

The Family Care Program assists provider families with agency administered treatment and support services. This can be a natural progression from the Foster Care System if the individual is developmentally disabled or referred by parents, schools, social workers or other professionals.

Interested in becoming a Family Care provider?

SCO is looking for caring families to provide support and guidance to adults with developmental disabilities.  Family Care providers can be married or single; men or women; owners or renters of a house, apartment or mobile home. Prior experience with individuals with developmental disabilities is not necessary. The most important requirement is the family’s willingness to provide the caring, understanding and security that an individual living in Family Care needs.  Learn more.  Fill out our Family Care provider form and we’ll be in touch shortly.
