PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The mission of the Community Support Program is to provide community services to eligible clients in compliance with all licensing and accreditation standards to meet the individualized patient care needs of persons assigned Intermediate Care Facilities-Mental Retardation (ICF-MR) Group Home Program.

The goal of the Community Support Program is to provide a 16 bed ICF-MR program, through a group home setting, to eligible clientele from Feliciana Forensic Facility and from East Louisiana State Hospital.

The Community Support Program is responsible for the operation of the 16-bed (three homes) ICF-MR group homes. This program operates in a manner consistent with all federal and state certification, licensing, governing body, legislative mandates, and other regulatory body standards, including the maintaining of Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA) and Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) and all other appropriate accreditation.
