New Services for Rural Children with Disabilities

"For many outstate parents with severely disabled children, finding a residential facility in their community often isn’t an option.  Many times the only place for children to get the services they need is in a residential facility or group home located out of town. A rural group is pioneering a program that allows disabled children to live at home and stay engaged in the community.

Home and Community Options (HCO) in Winona has operated a non-residential program for children with severe disabilities for the last seven years. They currently serve 70 families.  HCO’s Family Resource Home provides physical and emotional support for disabled children in a home-like setting during the day while the children stay with their families at night."
