Family Support Services

(formerly Project Rainbow)

family-services-mom-soneThis family strengthening program has been providing a lifeline to parents of medically fragile and/or special needs children for many years. Each family has access to up to 16 hours of care for ALL their children – and even the pets! These parents do not have the luxury of calling the neighborhood sitter when they need to go to the doctor, a job interview or just go out for a date night without the help of our respite workers. In addition to in-home care, we also provide a monthly “Kids Night Out” event where families can get some much-needed rest while their children enjoy themed, educational activities right here at Easterseals. We provide this monthly event with the help of our many treasured community partners such as Ringling Art School, Mote Marine Laboratories, LECOM, and Palmetto High’s FFA just to name a few.

Our services for families include:

    • In-Home Respite
    • Center-Based Respite
    • Cope with Hope
    • Parent Support Groups
