The SCDDB In-Home Respite Program is set up to help families pay for intermittent care for a family member with a developmental disability. The program can provide up to a maximum of twenty-five (25) hours per month. Click on document below to download complete application.
It is the desire of SCDDB to facilitate and enhance the education of parents about their children’s disabilities. Better educated parents are better equipped to respond to the needs of their own children, better informed when required to make choices and decisions that may have long-term consequences and better able to mentor and share their knowledge and experience with others who have just begun the journey of raising a child with a developmental disability.

The Individual/Family Funding Program is designed to assist Stone County individuals with developmental disabilities and their families to address unique habilitative and support needs that cannot be met with other revenue sources. The Individual/Family Funding Program is designed to complement, not take the place of existing funding sources, including such sources as Dept. of Mental Health, Vocational Rehabilitation, Dept. of Elementary and Secondary Education, Medicaid/Medicare/private insurance, local civic clubs and churches, local Community Action Agencies, etc. In addition, natural supports within the family as well as within the community should be identified prior to seeking financial assistance through SCDDB.
