Lexington’s Family Services supports over 200 families living in our community who are caring for a child or adult in their own home. Family support may take place at the family’s home, in the community or at a Lexington site. Family supports include respite; After School Program; evening and weekend recreation; childcare during school holidays and vacations; specialized groups; parent support groups and networks; and training, information and referral. Community Habilitation services include training and assistance to encourage a person to live, work and play as independently as possible in their own community.
