Families of chidren with IDD or social challenges, regardless of IQ
Welcome to the CPSH website! Parents, Siblings, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins all have a vested interested in ensuring their family member with a disability lives in a safe, affordable residence with great friends, close to amenities such as grocery stores, doctors offices, and entertainment.
Whatever the age of your child, the plan for apermanent residence for a family member is as important as plans for education and retirement for other family members; especially if your family member with a disability needs support services to live independently.
If your child is of school age, you will be participating in transition planning. Transition planning is a good time to think about where your child will live when they age into adulthood. In the past, parents have assumed they will keep their child at home after high school. Parents are now thinking about helping their children live independently, with supports, after high school, just like their typical siblings and classmates.
CPSH believes that everyone should live in the housing option that best meets their desires and needs. CPSH has several projects that may be of interest to your family.
If you are a future guardian for a family member with a disability, you may want to learn about housing options and support, so you know how best to help the individual when your time comes to ensure he/she is safe and thriving.
