All our services have fees associated, but we realize that not every participant can afford to pay the cost or discount fee. Those needing financial assistance should complete the Scholarship Grant Application section on the application form. Parents or other caregivers of children and adults eligible for county funds or Consumer Directed Community Supports (CDCS) for respite care or camp programs should contact us to find out whether these funds may be applied toward program fees.
Friendship Ventures makes decisions about financial assistance according to the family’s financial need and personal circumstances, as well as available funds. In determining the size of scholarship to give, we consider the family's income, the total number of dependents, other expenses related to care of the child, other sources of financial support and the family's need for respite. All families who demonstrate need are awarded some financial aid.
