We’re delighted to announce that, beginning in January, 2013, EADS will be an eligible Community Access provider in King County.
What’s Community Access?
It’s a one-on-one service that helps people with disabilities participate in inclusive events in the community by connecting them with individuals or groups in the community with whom they share an interest–and then providing the supports they need to join activities centered on that shared interest.
How much does it cost?
Community Access is one of the services available, at no cost, to adults with developmental disabilities on the DDD waiver program.
We’re also developing a hybrid community access program, involving small groups with shared interests, that will be available as a private pay service. Rates for that program will start at $10/hour, based on the activity, the size of the group and the level of care required.
Under both programs, participating individuals are responsible for any incidental fees associated with the event–such as admission fees, food and other purchased items.
How will EADS’ community access program differ from other providers’ programs?
When will services begin?
We’ll probably begin providing services to a small number of clients in mid-February or early March.
