Children's Extensive Support Waiver (CES)
Serving children ages 0-17, the Children’s Extensive Support Waiver (CES) helps children and families by providing services and supports that will help children establish a long-term foundation for community inclusion as they grow into adulthood.
Children who qualify for this waiver are entitled to ~$53,000 in services to benefit the children and families. Parents and/or guardians are able to allocate this funding to a variety of services and hire a caregiver to render the services. In many cases those who already know and love your child are the best caregivers for them (grandparents, uncles, aunts, friends, church friends, teachers, etc.).
We will hire those individuals, train, and pay them to provide the services you select for your child. Below is a list of services we support on this waiver!
We are able to have your caregiver that you selected and trust onboarded within 1 week!
