Home and Community Services
Support whenever you need it
Broad based and individualized support
Arc of Westchester's home and community services help individuals with developmental disabilities meet their daily challenges. We help by providing crisis intervention, individualized support services, in home behavior management, family outreach and Medicaid and non-Medicaid service coordination.
Crisis intervention provides a seven-day, 24-hour hotline staffed by a crisis team that can assist callers by stabilizing a crisis and making appropriate referrals to community services, including housing and medical resources.
Individualized support services help adults to live independently in the community. Intensive supports include service coordination, training in life skills and creating monthly financial budgets in order to maintain independent lifestyles.
In Home Behavior Management Training
The Arc of Westchester knows that some families who care for a child with a developmental disability may struggle with managing the unique behavioral challenges of their child with special needs . Our trained staff are available to provide time-limited (up to 90 days) behavior management service to families in their home at no cost.
Family Outreach is a team of professionals, including Spanish speaking staff, who work in the community, reaching out to families with a member who has a developmental disability whose needs for services are not being met. Families/individuals receive up to 90 days of service, free of charge, to assess and identify needs and link them to appropriate services.
Medicaid Service Coordination
Medicaid Service Coordination assists individuals and their families, who are Medicaid-eligible, to coordinate a broad range of services. These include access to governmental benefits and advocacy for services including medical evaluations and appointments, vocational training and career opportunities, educational services, recreational resources and housing.
