Family Support Skills Trainers and Respite Providers work one-on-one with people who have Developmental Disabilities living at home with their families. Working with a wide age range from younger children all the way through older adults, these staff work directly under the supervision of the individual’s family and will receive oversight by a Communitas Family Support Coordinator. Skills Trainers and Respite Providers are matched with families to work on skills and goals designed specifically for the individual.

Chase lives at home with his grandmother, who is his full-time caregiver. John recently matched with the family and began working with Chase as a Respite Provider, and what a match it is! John will take Chase out on fun adventures to provide his grandmother with a little break, and to help Chase to explore his community. This past weekend they went to Roller World and had a great time playing arcade games. They also plan to go swimming, and to the zoo, and maybe even the aquarium!
