Medicaid Service Coordination
Our Medicaid Service Coordination Department (MSC) is a Medicaid State Plan service administered by the NYS Office for People With Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD). We assist people with developmental disabilities in gaining access to necessary services and support to lead successful lives in the community according to their own needs.
Day Habilitation Program
Our Day Habilitation Program is designed to meet the needs of a wide variety of individuals with disabilities. We provide services in areas such as communication, socialization, interpersonal relations, civic awareness, environment, health & safety, transportation, recreation, leisure, and community knowledge.
Family Support Program
Our Family Support Program provides individual services and support to families that have a family member with disabilities. The program recognizes that meeting the needs of an individual who has severe disabilities may place hardships on a family’s emotional, physical, and financial resources and is designed to help alleviate the burden.
Community Habilitation Program
This program is designed to assist families in caring for disabled children or adults at home. A trained professional will come to the house and work with your child or loved one on adaptive living skills, travel training, relationship building and other needed skills. Our families have the option of being “self-directed” meaning they have the authority to choose their own staff. Families can receive approximately 6-8 hours a week of services depending on availability.
This program is specifically designed to meet the needs of school-aged children between the ages of 6 and 21 with developmental disabilities and autism. Each afternoon, children participate in educational, recreational and socialization experiences designed to enhance academic and social skills while boosting self-esteem. Homework help is also available. Designed and supervised by professional educators and clinicians, we offer the opportunity for children to enjoy a safe, supportive, and meaningful after-school experience.
Individualized Residential Alternatives (IRAs)
Our Individualized Residential Alternatives (IRAs) are certified homes that provide room, board, and individualized service options for those with developmental disabilities. Supervised IRAs provide 24-hour staff support and supervision for up to 8 residents. Our staff are specially trained to encourage the highest level of independence and decision making through 24-hour care in urban, suburban, and rural locations.
People Embracing People (PEP)
People Embracing People (PEP), formally known as Family Care, provides individuals with developmental disabilities an opportunity to live with a family in the community under the supervision of a trained caregiver. PEP caregivers receive training and ongoing support from professional staff to assist them in meeting the needs of individuals in their homes. We currently offer these services throughout the mid-Hudson Valley and NYC.
