Individuals Seeking Community Services Providers
Individuals Seeking Community Services Providers – DBHDS has developed this system to facilitate CSBs in presenting provider options to individuals who are seeking services. CSBs will add profiles of individuals’ needs on Survey Monkey at this link. The information posted on the “Profile of Individuals in Need of Services” will be updated every Friday on the chart accessed by clicking “List of Individuals Seeking Community Services Providers” below.
Providers who wish to be considered for any of the individuals profiled must enter their unique sets of skills, abilities and experiences on Survey Monkey at “Abbreviated Provider Services and Supports Information” via a second link, prior to contacting the CSB support coordinator listed. For some individuals transitioning from a training center, the name and contact information for the training center social worker is also listed.
If a provider feels that they have the ability to support a particular individual, the provider should send an email (with the individual’s unique identifier number) to the CSB contact (or training center social worker) requesting a return call to discuss the individual’s needs and preferences further.
If, after speaking with the contact person about the specific match needs, the provider believes that they have the ability to meet the individual’s needs, they may request that the contact person include their provider survey in the portfolio of profiles to be considered by the individual/family.
The CSB will retrieve the provider survey for that specific provider from Survey Monkey and will include it in the portfolio to be reviewed and considered by the individual and his/her family.
The individual/family will be presented with all profiles of providers that believe they can support the individual’s needs and wishes and will select at least 3 for tours/visits.
