Franklin County Community Services

Disability Services Coordination
Disability Services Coordination is designated as the "single entry point" for persons with disabilities seeking funding from Franklin County's MH/MR/DD Services Fund. The Community Services Director serves as the Disability Services Coordination Administrator. Franklin County's Mental Health/Disabilities Policies seek to provide individualized supports that assure choice, empowerment, and community integration for persons with mental illness, mental retardation, or other developmental disabilities, while effectively managing costs.

The Disability Services Coordination process includes determining eligibility, assisting with referrals to service providers, monitoring services, tracking all service costs, and establishing a quality assurance program.
