Individual Support Services
Arranges financial assistance for individuals with disabilities in the form of a rent subsidy to enable their independent living and prepare them for progressive autonomy.
Medicaid Service Coordination
CWI’s dedicated service coordinators are often the cornerstone of information to the individuals we serve and their families. Coordinators work with key staff to identify appropriate programs and services and advocate for individuals and their families for access to county, state, federal, private and custom assistance. A coordinator links and refers individuals to day and residential opportunities, in-home care, clinic services, employment, education and home modifications to accommodate individual challenges. Coordinators visit the home, workplace or educational setting of an individual for insights into their daily life and monitor for health, safety and satisfaction with services. Coordinators often develop long-term relationships with individuals and their families as they plan for the future and discuss strategies for addressing life’s challenges.

Designed for individuals living on their own or with family. CWI facilitates services to maximize individuals’ independence in activities of daily living both in their home and in the community. Each participant’s personal interests, needs and abilities are reflected in the services provided. This service is available to be self-directed to the individual and/or their family.
Respite Services
This is a service provided to primary family caregivers of individuals with a developmental disability who reside at home. Respite provides relief for the family members while ensuring the individual’s needs are met. This service is available to be self-directed to the individual and/or their family.
Transition Services
Guiding individuals from adolescence to adulthood, CWI assists high school students with disabilities and their families to understand and explore realistic prospects for future employment, day program or residential services, vocational or volunteer training or further education.

Tips For Prompt And Professional Assistance
1. Make an appointment - Always attempt to make an appointment. Oftentimes this will save you hours waiting in lines. When on the phone make sure you ask for the documentation needed in order to receive assistance.

2. Do not be late for your appointment - This tip should speak for itself.

3. Dress appropriately - If you want to be treated with respect, dress as appropriately as possible. We are not saying wear a suit. Just make sure you and your clothes are clean and non offensive. We have found that clients who dress in this manner have a better chance of receiving aid.

4. Bring all pre determined documentation - Bring all of the documents you were advised to bring from your appointment phone call. Without them, you will not receive aid.
