Connections staff are ready to provide assistance in transitions to individual living for residents of Weld County. Here is the process.
Once the member chooses to continue with moving forward, there are potentially four team meetings as follows:
1st Team Meeting: Reviewing the Transition Assessment and briefly discussing possible risks.
2nd Team Meeting: reviewing Risk Mitigation.
3rd Team Meeting: Making Transition Decision and if a transition is determined feasible by the team, planning for the community transition and applying for a housing voucher will begin.
4th Team Meeting: After the voucher has been awarded and housing has been located with assistance from a housing navigator, the transition coordinator will help arrange all transition details by having the fourth team meeting. During this meeting, all services needed will be identified and discussed with the team. If services can be put into place all team responsibilities will be discussed and a tentative transition date will be scheduled.
After the member transitions out into the community, the Connections transition coordinator will follow up and provide ongoing case management services up to one-year post transition. If the member prefers to continue receiving services, they can become a participant of services and supported through Connections by working with an Independent Living Specialist (ILS) after graduating from the transition program.
