Who we serve:

Children, Adults, Elderly, Disabled, and Handicapped

Our primary services accommodate intellectual and developmental disabilities. We are certified to offer services through the SCL and Michelle P Waivers funded by KY Medicaid for services to assist with conditions such as: autism, asperger syndrome, epilepsy, down syndrome, developmental delays, and intellectual disabilities.

Supports for Community Living (SCL) and Michelle P. Waiver (MPW) are home and community-based waivers developed as an alternative to institutional care for individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities. SCL allows individuals to remain in or return to the community in the least restrictive setting. Individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities who meet requirements for residence in an intermediate care facility for people with intellectial disabilities (ICF/MR) and who meet other Medicaid requirements are eligible for these services. Michelle P serves persons with a developmental or intellectual disability who require a protected environment while learning living skills, educational experiences, awareness of their environment and meet Medicaid financial eligibility requirements. Michelle P requires an assessment to determine eligibility which must be performed by the Community Mental Health center which serves your area. Please contact us for more information.
