Targeted Case Management
Our aim has always been to facilitate maximum independence, to offer thoughtful and caring support or behavioral coaching when needed, and always to treat the people we serve with dignity and respect. We deal with a unique gamut of issues, including: behavioral, medical, educational, employment, mental health, relationship building, housing, accessing benefits, and negotiating the legal system. Our service coordinators are caring, responsive, and attuned to social needs.
Our service coordinators work as a collaborative team. With our diversity of prior work experience and educational backgrounds, we offer special expertise in many areas such as autism, probation and legal problems, mental illness, medication, family systems, and aging.
What is a service coordinator?
Service coordinators help you get access to the best possible supports and services available. From developing your person-centered support plan to assisting you in obtaining benefits, we work to individualize these services to better meet your support needs or desires. We do not provide services, such as work, a place to live, financial support, transportation, therapy, training, or medical help. We do help you get those services when you need them. We are here to support you through any changes you make to your services.
What is independent service coordination?
We are an independent agency, unaffiliated with any service providers. Our service coordination goal is to fit services to you rather than to plug you into existing services. And since the only service we provide is service coordination, there is no other service we will try to "sell" you.
Who chooses my service coordinator?
Your service coordinator is selected based on your needs and preferences. You form a partnership with your service coordinator and others important in your life to identify your needs and reach your expectations. Your personal choices are respected and prioritized when possible.
