Step 1: Service Coordination

Service Coordination

Purpose:  Service Coordination helps people develop and obtain high quality supports and services that are the least intrusive to meet their desires and needs and support their personal goals.


  • Service Coordinators assist individuals with disabilities and their families with residential placement and day services

  • Service Coordinators work with area businesses and job coaches to locate and create meaningful employment opportunities for students and adults based on their individual talents and preferences.

  • Service Coordinators works closely with community agencies to see that individuals are making community connections.

  • Service Coordinators also work with the public schools to help children and their families navigate through the system.
