Service Coordination 

The Service Coordination program connects individuals with services and supports that reflect their dreams and needs. We help develop, implement and maintain a personal network of services, supports and activities. Self-advocacy, self-direction and empowerment are encouraged. Service Coordination is an alliance between the person, the Service Coordinator, and the person's chosen circle of support. The Service Coordinator works with this circle of support to explore interests and determine goals. Through Person Centered Planning (PCP) the Service Coordinator then sets up an Individualized Service Plan (ISP) to address and monitor those individualized needs and goals.

and Self Advocacy/Self Determination.

The cost for the Service Coordinator is almost always covered by Medicaid, so there is no charge to the individual. For those who do not have Medicaid Insurance, alternate payment plans can be arranged.
