Transitional Case Management for adults who need side by side assistance to obtain necessary benefits specific to an intellectual and developmental disability or delay
Denver Mill Levy services
Since 2017 CFPD has contracted with Rocky Mountain Human Services' Denver Mill Levy program to provide transitional case management services to people with intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD) who are homeless or at-risk of homelessness in Denver County. Eligible participants receive close assistance to prepare for, apply and obtain an official determination that they are eligible for Colorado HCBS IDD or SLS programs through Rocky Mountain Human Services.
Through the process of pursuing determination for services, CFPD's Mission Supports program will assist with obtaining an up to date state ID, Social Security card and active Medicaid medical coverage, an active or pending Social Security disability claim, and will also attend court hearings and other meetings that are necessary to keep the person on a path to obtaining disability-specific state and county services and permanent housing.
Wrap Around services
Thanks to 2020 funding from the Denver Foundation, Mission Supports is able to continue transitional case management for those individuals who are not determined eligible by RMHS, have obtained permanent housing prior to determination decision or have settled in a shelter outside of Denver, or do not meet other requirements to utilize Denver's Mill Levy funding. Through our Wrap Around service we also can take referrals from shelters and providers outside of Denver county and can provide assistance with pursuing permanent disability specific services and housing for those with an intellectual and developmental disability or delay.
