Help us continue to change lives! Become a 365 Campaign donor today!
By the end of 2023, we aim to have 365 monthly donors willing to donate $10 per month or more to ensure Kentuckians with disabilities thrive at work, at home, and in relationships. That's a new donor every day until the end of the year!
A donation to our general fund helps provide the good things in life many take for granted, things like access to good jobs, a home of one's own, meaningful relationships with friends and family and so much more.

THE PATH TO QUALITY SUPPORTS
Steps other similar organizations take, albeit markedly different than Mattingly Edge.
Steps Mattingly Edge takes that makes us unique among similar organizations in KY
Steps that Medicaid will fund. We rely on organizations, businesses, and individual donors to provide financial support to all other steps.
REFERRAL & INTAKE
Meet with the person seeking our services and their family/allies and spend time discussing expectations and filling out the appropriate paperwork
DEVELOPING PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENTS
Develop clear agreements about the nature of relationships, expectations, and roles/responsibilities of all parties involved
Get to know the person being supported as a unique individual by spending time with them, listening to others who know them well, and reviewing useful documents
Clarify the person's vision of a desirable future by describing short-term and long-term goals in concrete terms so every involved can understand
Help the person being supported navigate any waiver regulations or "red tape" keeping them from achieving their goals.
RECRUITMENT & HIRING
Recruit employees through a rigorous interview process and only hire those who align with our values and mission
ORIENTING NEW STAFF
Train new employees on our mission, vision, and best practices, including our theory of practice, critical thinking skills, and the use of cultural anthropology
The actual support time spent with the person being supported (this is the only part of our process for which Medicaid will pay)
SCHEDULING & SUPERVISION
Schedule flexible shifts with staff that are relevant to the supported individual's goals. DSPs are overseen by Community Facilitators who continue to mentor and provide support to DSPs.
MENTORING & TRAINING
Provide feedback and encourage growth amongst both individual employees and teams. Send staff to workshops/trainings for professional development
CUSTOM MATCHING & TEAMBUILDING
A team of supporters is recruited and matched with an individual based on personality, skills, interests, and logistics. Regular team meetings ensure supporters are in constant communication with one another and the person being supported.
