Mission Statement

The mission of the Community Relations Team is to increase the capacity of communities to serve people with developmental disabilities.  The team does this by providing counties, community agencies and families/guardians with consultation, technical assistance and training.

Community Relations Team Services

Services are provided to benefit Center residents and their families, persons participating in MA Waiver programs such as CIP1A and CIP1B, and other adults with developmental disabilities who may be at risk for institutional placement.  There is no charge for the services.

Team members provide:

  1. Consultation to resolve behavioral or medical issues

  2. Staff training and development

  3. Pre-placement planning

  4. Transition assistance

  5. Post-placement support

  6. Technical assistance

Services can be accessed by calling the Director or a Community Relations Team member.  County staff and appropriate MA Waiver staff will be notified of all client-specific requests.
