Deposits are not required for individuals using wavered funds, County funds or Adoption Assistance funds to pay for their sessions.

Confirmation

Within three weeks after we receive your completed application and deposit you will receive a confirmation packet with information you’ll need prior to coming to True Friends. We will notify you if the session(s) you’ve selected are full and we will try to find an alternative session. If you don’t receive a confirmation packet, please call immediately.

Cancellation Policy

In the event of a cancellation, all fees paid will be refunded in full if notice is received in the True Friends office 30 days prior to the participant’s session. If less than 30 days notice is received, all fees paid but the deposit will be refunded. Waivered, County and Adoption Assistance contracts will NOT pay cancellation fees, therefore participants/guardians will be billed accordingly.

Financial Assistance

All of our services have fees associated, but we realize that not every participant can afford to pay the cost. Those needing financial assistance should complete the Financial Assistance form and submit it WITH the application to be considered.  True Friends makes decisions about financial assistance according to the family’s financial need and personal circumstances, as well as available funds. In determining the size of award to give, we consider the family’s income, the total number of dependents, other expenses related to care of the camper, other sources of financial support and the family’s need for respite. You can find the Financial Assistance Form here.

Parents or other caregivers of children and adults eligible for county funds, traditional waivered funds (CADI, DD, EW, CAC and BI) or Consumer Directed Community Supports (CDCS) for respite care or camp programs should contact their county social worker to find out whether these funds may be applied toward program fees.

Pay Your Bill

If you would like to pay the balance of an invoice you have received via credit card please call 952.852.0101 ext. 360.

Forms

Download, print and complete then email or mail it in.
