Welcome To Our Official Website

Our Mission: To promote and support the use of self-directed services to empower
individuals with developmental disabilities to achieve purposeful and
fulfilling lives.

  • Every person, regardless of disability or socioeconomic status, has the right to a self-directed life.
  • All individuals can self-direct their programs given appropriate supports.
  • The participant is always the team leader.  All team members must work together to ensure that the participant’s unique strengths, needs, and desires are reflected in the person-centered program.
  • CMS (The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services) guidelines permit flexibility and participant choice/control of services, thus allowing participants real budget and employer authority.  Maryland’s HCBS Waivers should reflect those principles as well.
