1

REFERRAL & INTAKE

Meet with the person seeking our services and their family/allies and spend time discussing expectations and filling out the appropriate paperwork

2

DEVELOPING PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENTS

Develop clear agreements about the nature of relationships, expectations, and roles/responsibilities of all parties involved

3

DISCOVERY

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

4

VISIONING

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

5

ADVOCACY

Help the person being supported navigate any waiver regulations or "red tape" keeping them from achieving their goals. 

6

RECRUITMENT & HIRING

Recruit employees through a rigorous interview process and only hire those who align with our values and mission

7

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

9

DIRECT SUPPORT

The actual support time spent with the person being supported (this is the only part of our process for which Medicaid will pay)

10

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. 

11

MENTORING & TRAINING

Provide feedback and encourage growth amongst both individual employees and teams. Send staff to workshops/trainings for professional development

8

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.
