About Kaiser Home Support Services
The agency was incorporated on March 20, 1981 as a nonprofit domestic corporation in the state of Indiana as “The Floyd County Foundation for the Handicapped, Inc.” It was an exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. A Board of Directors consisting of area business persons and parents of children with disabilities was formed.
In 1992, the agency began providing respite services in Floyd County, Indiana and three surrounding counties. By 1994, our reach had expanded to ten counties. Our range of services also increased when Medicaid Waiver and Choice Program services were added. These program additions allowed the agency to better support our mission and vision by expanding our client base to include not only those persons with Developmental Disabilities, but also those who were aged or disabled due to illness associated with age.
In 1994, we took the name Southern Indiana Respite Services. Through 2004, we continued to provide quality care, adding programs including Social Block Grant Title III and the Support Services Waiver that increased our ability to support our community.
In May 2008, both our name and base of operations changed. In recognition of a dedicated champion of the agency and former Board Member, Jack Kaiser, the newly renamed Kaiser Home Support Services, Inc moved our main offices to Unruh Court in New Albany, Indiana.
In 2015, our growing organization once again moved its base of operations, this time to our current home at 2633 Grant Line Road in New Albany.
Today KHSS is proud to offer services in Floyd, Clark, Dubois, Harrison, Scott, Washington, Crawford and Orange counties. KHSS is available to our clients every day of the year at any time of day they feel they need. Coverage may be available through the Indiana Medicaid Programs such as Aged and Disabled, TBI, Choice, SSBG, Title III, Caregiver Support, CIH, and FSW.
