The Charlotte White Center (CWC) provides community case management services to adults with a diagnosis of intellectual or developmental disability. These services are intended to connect affected individuals with the skills and resources necessary for them to reduce or recover from any medical or behavioral symptoms that negatively impact the person’s quality of life. An additional service provided within case management is Representative Payee for assisting individuals with their social security income.
Utilizing our strengths based approach, including a focus on family, our staff works to create a partnership between the consumer and their family, identifying and prioritizing areas of concern. This newly formed team works to maximize its potential by determining the individual’s strengths and needs, and the presence or absence of skills and resources necessary for them to achieve their goals.
Our Case Managers then monitor the plan to ensure flexibility, so that it remains relevant to the individual’s specific needs as progress occurs and changes develop. This includes Representative Payee, if needed.
CWC seeks to make the best use of the consumer’s natural support system by using the following strengths based approach:
Once an individual has been found eligible for adult Developmental Services and has chosen CWC to provide their Case Management, a member of the Case Management staff will begin the intake process. A CWC staff member will contact you and schedule an appointment for initial intake.
