Boone County Family Resources Clients Served by Fiscal Year, 2005-2009

Definition: The number of persons with a developmental disability and two or more functional limitations served by Boone County Family Resources (formerly Boone County Group Homes and Family Support) during the last fiscal year. (July - June)

Rationale: This statistic meets most criteria and demonstrates the number of persons with a developmental disability and two or more functional limitations who need services and resources in order to live as independently as possible.

Because Boone County Family Resources does not currently have a client waiting list, this information may be used as a proxy measure related to the number of persons with developmental and physical disabilities living in Boone County utilizing individually planned services and supports.

Data Source: No on-line information. Statistics are provided directly from Boone County Family Resources. Data available in Boone County Family Resources Annual Report at http://bcfr.org/Annual Report.pdf.
