Who provides these services?
Douglas County Developmental Disabilities contracts with local organizations to provide vocational and residential services. The county also provides a case manager for each person who is eligible for services regardless of age.
How much do these services cost?
There is no charge for case management services. Many individuals are eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Medicaid, thereby covering most or all of the cost for residential and vocational services.
How long will I have to wait for services?
Case management services are available immediately to all persons who are eligible for, and who desire, services within available funding. There are waiting lists for residential, vocational, and support services. Individuals are encouraged to place their names on these lists as soon as possible.
