Family Directed / Self Directed Services for Adults
At Community Crossroads we strive to offer Individuals over the age of 21, their parents/ guardians, as much choice and control as possible. In Participant Directed Services, often referred to as Family or Self Directed, the designated Family Representative works collaboratively with their service coordinator to design, develop, and manage their program. They will work together to develop their budget, within their allocated funding and the parameters of state regulations to determine the hourly wage of their direct support professional, number of hours per week, etc. The Family Representative designs the program, assumes the role of Family Managed Supervisor, hires their staff, and provides the training and supervision to their Family Managed Employee. The assigned Service Coordinator works alongside the Family Representative to guide them through the process and development of their Individual Service Agreement. This service is based on available funding.
