Programs are funded through the Home and Community Based Services (HCS) and Texas Home Living Programs (TxHmL) of the Department of Aging and Disability Services, and the Department of Assistive and Rehabilitative. Our staff meets with the individual and their family to ensure that an individual’s plans are person-centered care plan, incorporating the person’s preferences accordingly. Community Options believes there are four values critical to supporting individuals with disabilities and their families successfully: individual choice; customer satisfaction; person-centered planning; and economic empowerment.
Housing programs are designed to assist people with disabilities moving from state facilities, nursing homes, or who are on waiting list for community services, to find housing in their community. Community Options offers other options of residential services such as Foster/Companion Care allows people with disabilities to reside with a family to provide and assistances with medical issues, transportation, learning new things and community integration. Other services include respite and support services for people living at home with their families or residing in their own home.
Employment programs focus on individual competitive jobs or community volunteer placements. Community Options provides the evaluations, support and follow-up services required to assist individuals with pursuing employment, taking into consideration the special needs of each individual.
Day Habilitation programs are designed to enhance daily living skills, vocational and community skills through volunteerism, and community integration. Community Options supports people to actualize their potential, acquire new skills, develop meaningful relationships, contribute to their communities, build self-esteem and enjoy new experiences.
Texas Home Living (TxHmL) provides community-based services and supports to eligible individuals who live in their own homes or in their family homes, while on the waiting list for Home and Community-Based Services.
