The Individual and Family Support Unit (IFSU) provides intensive services, counseling, education, and support to individuals with developmental disabilities, their families, and service providers in Iroquois County.

The Individual and Family Support Unit enables an individual to live in a community environment such as independent living, home, or other home-like living arrangements; continue to remain an integral member of his or her family; and achieve social inclusions in the natural environment or community. The supports that are provided are based on individual family needs.

One of the most important features that IFSU offers is that we work with the entire family who has a member(s) with developmental disabilities. We provide home-based supports and serve as a support system to families in our community.

Staff assist people in applying for financial benefits and completing periodic reports for the Social Security Administration and Medicaid, etc. When others are not available, The Arc may serve as Representative Payee for a person to receive government benefits. Basic information about futures planning is also provided for people and their guardians.

 

Individuals in this program also have the benefit of attending the Drop In Center.  The Center provides a social opportunity to enjoy recreation, money management, cooking classes, and a variety of other activities that help individuals become a vital part of their community.
