Children’s Extensive Support Medicaid Waiver

The Children’s Extensive Support Waiver helps children (under 18) and families by providing services and supports that will help children establish a long-term foundation for community inclusion as they grow into adulthood. This program is specifically for children demonstrating a medical or behavioral condition where constant line of supervision is regularly needed to keep the child and others safe. Services include: personal assistance with daily living, respite, community connector services, assistive technology, home modification, and professional services.

Some of the work we are doing for each initiative includes:
