Family & Community Services
We are committed to keeping children & families safe & connected in their home and communities by offering multiple programs for children with delays or disabilities.
Birth to 3 is a federally mandated program that offers support to families whose children have a delay in one or more areas of development. These developmental areas include communication, movement, thinking skills, social/emotional development, and self-help skills. They may also have a diagnosed condition known to cause delays. Supports may include education, therapy and service coordination. Find more information at: dhs.wisconsin.gov.
Children’s Community Options Program (C-COP)
C-COP is for families who have a child, ages birth to 21, who have a developmental delay or diagnosed condition. The program provides service coordination and financial support to assist families to care for their children within the home. C-COP is a new program as of January 2016.
Children's Long-Term Support (CLTS)
CLTS is a federally and state funded program that provides support to families who have a child with special needs. As in C-COP, this program can serve children birth to 21 years of age.
