Service Coordination/Case Management

At the Arc, Targeted Case Management or Service Coordination would more appropriately be called Support Coordination and Advocacy. Using a holistic, individualized approach we provide advocacy and support coordination in school, home, and community support settings. We use our expertise related to DD Supports in the community and schools to assist individuals and families get the supports and services they need to be successful in their personal goals and dreams. It is the right of an individual or family to change providers at anytime.
