Community Case Management develops and oversees a comprehensive and individualized service plan with an emphasis on principles of empowerment, community inclusion, health and safety, and the use of natural supports. Our team provides case management to adults (18+) intellectual disabilities. Services include but are not limited to; developing and maintaining a comprehensive service plan, referral, support, advocacy, and coordination of services. In addition our CCM’s provide top of the line Individual Service Plans outlining all of the support provided to the consumer in 90 day intervals.
Our mission is to promote independence and freedom of choice for the individuals we serve. Our core beliefs include that each person with a disability has a desire for a rich and varied life, including a physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual dimension. We also believe each person grows through their life experience and has the right to make his/her own life choices, including those that may involve risk. We support each person to discover their own dream for a meaningful life.
Our team consists of a group of highly qualified and well trained individuals. At minimum, our CCM staff must have a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited four (4) year institution of higher learning with a specialization in psychology, mental health and human services, behavioral health, behavioral sciences, social work, human development, special education, counseling, rehabilitation, sociology, nursing or closely related field is minimally required. Additionally, our CCM’s are supported to attend Bi-Weekly supervision sessions as well as team meetings monthly. We are proud to announce that all of our Case Managers are currently in the process of earning their LSW.
