  • Case Management is provided for individuals enrolled in programs such as Alternative Care (AC), Community Alternative Care (CAC), Community Alternatives for Disabled Individuals (CADI), and Elderly Waiver (EW).  Case Management is a collaboration of assessments, planning, facilitation, and advocacy to assist the individual in having their health needs met to promote their quality of life in a cost effect manner.

  • Public Health Emergency Preparedness (PHEP) is a coordinated effort involving local, state, and federal government agencies as well as volunteer organizations and businesses.  We assist communities and their citizens to prepare for, respond to, recover from, and eliminate or reduce the effects of natural and man-made emergencies and disasters.
