Disability Services

We help persons with developmental disabilities succeed!


 

Program Description

Catholic Charities of Southern Missouri provides support coordination for individuals who have been diagnosed with a developmental disability and have been determined eligible for services by the state of Missouri Department of Mental Health, Division of Developmental Disabilities.

CCSOMO Support Coordinators assist families in finding supports to meet unmet needs regarding resources, access to state funded supports, and relevant information. These resources include comprehensive medical, social, educational and other specialized services.

CCSOMO Support Coordinators have it as their goal to empower each individual to live independently, work, and be valued members of the community.

Eligibility

Currently, this program of Catholic Charities of Southern Missouri serves residents of Cape Girardeau County and Scott County only.
Individual must have a developmental disability diagnosis prior to the age of 22.
Eligibility for services is determined by the Regional Office of the Missouri Department of Mental Health (MDMH).
To determine your eligibility, please contact the MDMH Sikeston Regional Office at 573.472.5300.
Once a referral is made by the MDMH Regional Office in Sikeston, a Catholic Charities of Southern Missouri Service Coordinator meets with the individual and their family to form a relationship and gather information in order to develop an Individual Service Plan (ISP). Service Coordinators continue to work with the individual and their support team (family, friends, school staff and service providers) to locate resources, make referrals, monitor services that are being provided, and help assure that the Individual Service Plan is being followed correctly.

Intake Process

Intake is completed by the Missouri Department of Mental Health, Division of Developmental Disabilities, and is forwarded to CCSOMO for support coordination. Learn more about this process by visiting MO MHDDS online here.
