Program C: Community Support

Program Authorization: R.S. 28:380-451

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The mission of the Community Support Program is to provide community-based residential living and other supports and services to individuals with developmental disabilities who live in community homes operated by the Developmental Center or who live at home and receive habilitative services through Southwest Louisiana Developmental Center.

The goal of the Community Support Program is to use person-centered approaches to planning for services for individuals in the community Support Programs operated by Southwest Louisiana Developmental center.

The Community Support Program provides community-based and person-centered supports to disabled individuals through an array of services including community homes, supported independent living, early intervention, and adult day habilitation. This program provides choices and expanded options to individuals with disabilities and thereby enhances integration into their communities.

Major activities of this program include operating two community homes, and three adult day community integration and employment service programs.

OBJECTIVES AND PERFORMANCE INDICATORS

Unless otherwise indicated, all objectives are to be accomplished during or by the end of FY 1999-2000. Performance indicators are made up of two parts: name and value. The indicator name describes what is being measured. The indicator value is the numeric value or level achieved within a given measurement period. For budgeting purposes, performance indicator values are shown for the prior fiscal year, the current fiscal year, and alternative funding scenarios (continuation budget level and Executive Budget recommendation level) for the ensuing fiscal year (the fiscal year of the budget document).
