Services are based on the Person-Centered Plan (PCP) of each individual enrolled in this service.  The PCP is also known as the Individualized Service Plan.  This plan is developed with the Case Manager/Support Coordinator, the individual, service providers, and other people chosen by the individual.  Each plan is strength-based and includes what is important to the person as well as what is important for the person to be healthy and safe.  These services consist of skill-building, routine supports, general supports, and safety supports that enable an individual to acquire, retain or improve the self-help, socialization and adaptive skills necessary to reside successfully in home and community–based settings.
