Case Management

Our Targeted Case Management (TCM) team coordinates services for individuals with disabilities who receive the Intellectual/Developmental Disability (I/DD) waiver in achieving and maintaining their preferred lifestyle by helping clients understand their rights and responsibilities. Our case managers work hard to assist those we serve in locating/accessing services, funding sources, and community resources.

CPRF is dedicated to assisting all the individuals that we serve access opportunities for employment, employment training, and community resources to help them reach their personal employment goals.

  • Support Plans address community employment and include goals that help individuals reach their full working potential.
  • TCMs assist with locating options for employment, training, as well as community resources to help build the skills and confidence needed to work in the community.
  • TCMs have the ability to connect clients who want to work with resources available through CPRF, and through our local Vocational Rehabilitation ( VR) office. VR works directly with CPRF’s Job Placement Department to help those with disabilities become gainfully employed.
