M-Pacting will coordinate affordable housing and supportive living resources for beneficiaries we serve. The services are designed to assist beneficiaries in acquiring, retaining and improving the self-help, socialization, and adaptive skills necessary to reside successfully in the home- and community-based setting.
M-Pacting will provide supportive employment services and coordination for individuals approved for CED waiver services or ARS services that are person-centered and tailored to assist in their goal of working in competitive, integrated work settings.
As a future goal, M-Pacting is working to provide some innovative programming and services to provide respite care for caregivers in our community. More information will be provided soon. In the meantime, M-Pacting can coordinate respite services on a short-term basis to beneficiaries unable to care for themselves due to the absence of or need for relief of non-paid caregivers.
