The Foundations Program offers services to people aged 18-28. Through direct and indirect supports, Community Connecting with an emphasis on Case Management versus hands on supports will be provided.
Person Centered Practices will be used to help set goals and Action Plans will help achieve success. Goals will include but not be limited to Employment, Living Accommodations, Self Advocating and Education.
Within the Foundations Program, Community Connecting is a primary goal wherever possible. This service is intended to mirror the values of the larger CLPS organization and conform to its current strategic directions. This means that they will be guided by an approach that is steeped in the ideal of “Community First” as a cornerstone for people being able to participate more fully in all aspects of their community and to benefit from the use of a person-centered service delivery model.
Person Centered Case Management:
A Person Centered Team will be used for planning purposes. CLPS will act in the role of “Lead agency” when multiple agencies are involved. The Community Inclusion and Support Facilitator role within CLPS will be to provide Service Coordination through:
- Promoting and facilitating an inclusion based approach that links the adult and/or family to community based services and supports and;
- Promoting and facilitating opportunities that connect each person to the community and provides opportunities for self advocating.
