Quadco News

The board of direc­tors of Quadco met in a plan­ning ses­sion on Tues­day and dis­cussed the empha­sis being placed on com­mu­nity employ­ment and inte­gra­tion for indi­vid­u­als with dis­abil­i­ties across the coun­try and in the state of Ohio.

The board learned that deci­sions by the Depart­ment of Jus­tice and Cen­ters for Medicare and Med­ic­aid are direct­ing that indi­vid­u­als with dis­abil­i­ties have full access to ben­e­fits of com­mu­nity liv­ing and the oppor­tu­nity to receive ser­vices in the most inte­grated set­tings appro­pri­ate.

It was noted that offi­cials in Ohio, and in par­tic­u­lar, here in our area through the efforts and enter­prises of Quadco, have been pro­mot­ing efforts in sup­port of these objec­tives all along, includ­ing an empha­sis on com­mu­nity employ­ment.

As pre­vi­ously dis­cussed, the board plans to broaden the center’s mis­sion state­ment, and they hope to be able to have some new exam­ples ready to go over at the next board meet­ing in April.
