Agency with Choice

What is Agency with Choice?

Agency with Choice assists individuals with intellectual disabilities who choose to live in a home based setting, by helping with the management and payment of the family's chosen support worker(s) for various services as approved in the consumer's individual support plan.  These services include:

  • Habilitation
  • Companion
  • Respite
  • Homemaker and chore; and,
  • Supported employment

Families can direct services their way!

  • They are able to chose who to hire as a worker.
  • They are able to manage their support workers.
  • They determine their worker's schedule.
  • They decide on their worker's duties.

Consumers must be referred by Service Access & Management, Inc. Support service workers must be at least 18 years of age and be able to pass applicable background clearances.

This program is available in Berks and Schuylkill Counties.
