Service: Community Employment Support (CES)
About: The purpose of the CES Waiver is to support beneficiaries of all ages who have a developmental disability, meet the institutional level of care, and require waiver support services to live in the community and thus prevent institutionalization. The goal is to create a flexible array of services that allow people to reach their maximum potential in decision-making, employment, and community integration; thus giving their lives the meaning and value they choose. The objectives are to: transition eligible persons who choose the waiver option from residential facilities into the community; provide priority services to persons who meet criteria for the third tier of service (requiring supports 24 hours a day, seven (7) days a week); and, enhance and maintain community living for all persons participating in the waiver program.
