Crisis Intervention Program for Developmental Disabilities
Community Outreach Programs
The Crisis Intervention Program provides support and assistance to families and other care-providers when a person with a developmental disability is in a crisis situation involving their behavior, health, or involvement in the community. The program offers support to persons with developmental disabilities so that they may adequately function in family, community, and work settings.
The Crisis Intervention Program is administered by the Neurodevelopmental and Behavioral Pediatrics division of Golisano Children's Hospital. It is a family support services program through OPWDD. Individuals who meet eligibility criteria for OPWDD, who live in Monroe County and who meet the crisis criteria are eligible for service. There is no fee for this service.
