To assist with capacity building across the state of Ohio, groups of both county boards and private providers are working with national Subject Matter Experts to transform their services from facility to community based. These groups receive guidance in the development of strategies to better include competitive and integrated employment options and more person centered services. Additionally they are working to sustain funding streams to support the individuals they serve through building best practices.
The original Project Transformation consists of four county boards and three private providers who are working with five expert systems transformation consultants to create agency-specific transformation plans. Support for these teams include on-site visits, training and tools from the Subject Matter Experts. Click here to see team transformation plans and implementation steps.
This project is a component of the Employment First State Leadership Mentor Program facilitated by the Office of Disability Employment Policy. Eight teams, four county boards and four private providers, are receiving technical assistance from experts at Transcen to develop strategic plans to move their systems to be more community integrated. These teams began in Spring 2015 and return completed plans in the Fall 2015. Click here to see team transformation plans.
