Family Support Services Program (FSS)
The FSS program has several components to it.
They are: Respite Care; Community Habilitation; Family Grants; SAP; and Integrated Behavioral and Family Intervention Program.
A trained and qualified homemaker provides a specific level of care as defined by the New York Department of Health as "Personal Care Level One".
Medicaid Service Coordination (MSC)
MSC is broadly considered ‘case management’ services. Each MSC has a caseload of approximately 30 or so consumers diagnosed with “pervasive developmental disability’.
Most consumers have other physical and psychological diagnoses as well. Many of our consumers have inadequate financial resources and social supports.
Family & Child Service of Schenectady recently began a new service program funded by the NYS Office of People with Developmental Disabilities called Pathway to Employment. This “person centered” employment program enables individuals with developmental disabilities to learn workplace skills with the assistance of an employment specialist and job coach.
