When Cole County residents with disabilities and their families seek services, one of the first agencies contacted will most likely be a Department of Mental Health Regional Office or a targeted case management (TCM) entity. From the initial contact with Central Missouri Regional Office until the determination of eligibility, the expectation is that those who feel they need assistance from the Division of Developmental Disabilities will have the help they need to:
determine if the Division of DD can provide the proper services;
complete the application;
provide necessary collateral documentation;
receive thorough and accurate assessments, if necessary;
receive any needed referrals to other agencies and services; and
receive advocacy throughout any needed appeal process.
APPLYING FOR SERVICES
To apply for services, contact Central Missouri Regional Office at:
They will process the application and determine eligibility and if the individual has been found eligible for services, then a support coordinator will be assigned through Central Connections, Inc.
