Family Support Services

Offering support to the whole family when their child is seriously ill or injured.​

Our Family Support Services (FSS) program provides compassionate emotional support for all children, parents, and families throughout their time staying with us and continuing after they leave RMHFW.

The purpose of the Family Support Services program is to provide stability for families who are far from their homes, who have lost their support system, and who need a place to feel safe and understood. This program promotes mental health wellness and recognizes the impact the family’s medical journey has had on them and others.

Program Offers:

One-on-one meetings with a licensed marriage and family therapist associate who can provide support during your stay.

Resources such as postpartum care, mental health/therapy resources, financial aid resources, family resources for parents and children, and much more.

Group activities and educational workshops for parents and children.

Continued care as you transition home. Referrals to local resources if applicable.

Program Led By:

Kayla Wendt

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate
