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.
