WV Family Support Program

The Program provides help with planning for needs and finding resources; help with identifying and applying for appropriate government and community programs; funding for goods, services or home modifications that will help families stay together; and networking and support services.

Families fill out a simple application requesting support. The Regional Coordinator meets with each family to develop a long range plan. Together they decide how the Family Support Program can best serve the family.

The Regional Council meets regularly and reviews all applications. They determine how the funds will be distributed to benefit the most families. Often, a Council member can recommend a local resource to reduce the overall cost of a request (volunteer labor, discounts at local businesses, etc.). In this way, the limited funds can be stretched to reach those families most in need.
