In fiscal year 2015, 417 individuals received direct, indirect, and/or outreach services through the agency's respite program.

In FY 2015 across the agency respite was provided to:

  • 141 adults participated in an array of programs, including the three described above
  • 207 extended family members received services to help them better understand how to address the emotional and developmental needs of their developmentally disabled family member(s).
  • 69 (est.) individuals received responses following requests for information
