Self-Directed Supports

Self-Direction empowers individuals by providing them the opportunity to manage their services and supports based on their personal strengths and needs.  Through Self-Direction, our staff work with individuals to help them design their services such as; selecting service providers, choosing supports, determining how to use funding, and coordinating schedules.  Self-direction gives individuals more control and flexibility to choose the mix of supports and services that work best for them, so they can live the life they desire.

Through Self-Direction individuals are given the opportunity to make decisions about supports and services that help them to:

- Enjoy meaningful relationships with family and friends

- Experience health and growth

- Live in the home and community of their choice and

- Work, volunteer or do activities they enjoy
