Family Services

St. Margaret’s offers support and resources to families to guide them in their roles as caregivers for children with intensive medical needs or who have disabilities.

We offer:

  • Return-to-home family training
  • Advocacy with Medicaid and other funding sources 
  • Social work and case management services
  • On-site furnished apartment for family stays
  • Family-focused events and activities

We are always available to families who have questions or concerns about their child or any service or treatment at St. Margaret’s. We work together with families to make sure that all of their child’s needs – medical, social, educational, emotional – are being met.
