Yedei Chesed’s Family Support Coordinators (FSCs) are trained to support families by maintaining ongoing contact throughout the year and gaining an understanding of the unique circumstances they face on a day-to-day basis. While the intake and eligibility processes and care coordination are spearheaded by Care Coordination Organizations (CCOs), Yedei Chesed continues to be a bastion of support, information and resources for families. The FSC’s are here to help families:
  • Access resources
  • Understand the intake and eligibility process
  • Understand their options regarding services
  • Connect with other families through support groups
  • Obtain Family Support Services
  • Connect with the CCO of their choice
  • Obtain necessary paperwork 
 
The FSC’s are also available to act as an advocates between the family and CCO where necessary.
​Most importantly, FSCs are here to ensure that no one facing a developmental disability feels alone in their journey.
