Serving People with Intellectual Disabilities

Agency with Choice

The Agency with Choice (AWC) program is a financial management/participant-directed service available to individuals with an intellectual disability who reside in their own residence or the home of a family member in Warren and Forrest County.

Participants have a high level of choice and control over managing their own services and supports with the Agency with Choice Program (AWC). A joint relationship is formed between an individual and/or family member with the AWC provider who provides administrative help to assist in managing the approved ODP Waiver services.

The ODP Agency with Choice Program is a joint employment arrangement in which the Participant or a surrogate, if preferred are the managing employer. That means they are responsible for directing and managing the staff in the home. The Agency with Choice provider is the employer of record. As such, they are responsible for handling the employment-related finances and paperwork. Please contact the Warren office for more information.
