Affordable Services

We offer a sliding scale.  Families can "pay for" services by doing independent volunteer work in their community with the charity/organization of their choice. For example, local school, community center, hospital, homeless/food shelter. In addition, there is an option to do less volunteer hours and pay a low co-pay. Therefore, your support is truly private as no reports are sent to any Managed Care or Insurance Companies.
