My family is interested in becoming a Shared Living Provider. Do we get to select the person who will live with us?
Potential Shared Living Providers must complete an interview process with the individual seeking Shared Living services to ensure a successful match between the individual and the family.
Can I receive Targeted Case Management services if I am on the waiting list?
Yes, you can receive Targeted Case Management services while you are on the waiting list. TCM services can be provided to an individual through his or her KanCare medical card, or by paying for the service privately. Case managers can assess the individual’s needs and complete referrals to generate other community services (i.e. assistive technology, vocational rehabilitation services, etc.).
How will Community Living Services benefit me or my loved one?
Community Living Services will benefit you or your loved one by supporting the greatest degree of independence possible in an individual’s chosen lifestyle. Community Living Services assist individuals with intellectual or other developmental disabilities to build skills, increase independence, and live successfully and happily in the community of their choice.
What if I’m not yet ready for independent community employment?
CLASS’ Innovative Employment Options service provides several choices in order to meet the needs of each individual. CLASS’ Job Training Areas in our service centers provide job readiness and job skills training. CLASS Job Coaches can provide intensive, one-on-one supports to assist in job readiness training. CLASS also provides several enclave or work crew opportunities where several individuals along with a Job Coach work in a business location.
