CMA helps men and women with intellectual and developmental disabilities live full, rich lives in their communities by providing residential, vocational and case management services.
Case Management Services
People with developmental disabilities and their caretakers often have a hard time identifying the supports and services that are available to help them. Recreational opportunities, transportation, financial benefits, skill building at home, medical care, a supportive place to live — all are available if you know where to look and how to use them. It’s the case manager, aka service coordinator, who’s the spider in the center of the web, the person who weaves together the disparate and often confusing services offered by a host of providers.
A coordinator’s job is to get to know the person needing services and his family; to work with them to identify their needs and the services that will help them; to write a service plan and to secure the services identified in the plan for which the person is eligible and/or entitled.
CMA’s service coordinators devise individualized plans and secure services for both CMA residents and non residents. These include: ascertaining eligibility, as well as overseeing and managing applications for benefits such as Social Security Disability, Supplemental Security Income, Medicaid, food stamps, and the Home and Community Based Services Waiver Program (HCBS); services like day and residential programs, and employment assistance.
