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 Early Intervention Program

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.


Coordinated Services Teams Program (CST)

CST is designed to develop a comprehensive, individualized system of care for children with complex behavioral health needs. The CST itself is a group that includes family members, service providers, and others that work to develop and carry out a coordinated services plan for the child. This model of care is often referred to as “wraparound.” The result is a Plan of Care that addresses the needs of the child and family with community-based supports, which allows the child to live in their home and community and realize their hopes and dreams.
