COMMUNITY RESOURCE CONNECTIONS
The Arc of Monroe’s Community Resource Connections is a free service for people with intellectual or developmental disabilities living in Monroe County. Our Community Resource Specialist (CRS) can help individuals and families with a variety of supports and services including: OPWDD Eligibility, Medicaid Enrollment, and immediate assistance with basic needs.
How It Works:
Step 1: The Community Resource Specialist (CRS) meets with you wherever you are the most comfortable.
Step 2: Working together, you develop short and long term goals. During this step, the CRS will help fill out any needed paperwork.
Step 3: The CRS submits the paperwork to providers, including OPWDD.
Step 4: Once the short term goals have been met, the CRS helps identify any additional assistance needed to accomplish the long term goals. If you could benefit from having a Medicaid Service Coordinator (MSC), the Community Resource Specialist will help you get connected to one.
