We have a responsibility to our community and our donors and work hard to ensure long-term sustainability of the organization.

ICF/ IID (Intermediate Care Facility for the Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities)

  • Homes range from 8-10 people.
  • ICF/IID is licensed by the ODMRDD, to be operated by a specific provider at a specific location.
  • The Ohio Department of Health (ODH) yearly certifies an ICF/IID.
  • The provider is responsible for all aspects of care for the individual, including financial, transportation, habilitation and medical.
  • The funding stays with the home and does not follow the person.
  • Level of Care assessment is done upon admission. The individual must be Medicaid eligible, have a DD diagnosis and require continuous active treatment.
  • There is currently no expansion in this area; we only maintain the existing ICF/IID facilities.

IO Waiver (Individual Options Waiver)

IO Waivers are funded by slots given to the County from the State (Federal Money)

  • WLRS is an IO Waiver provider. We provide this service in various settings
    • Licensed 24- hour care facilities (Wojo, Whittaker, Meach, Walters, Sipes, Dave Miller, Bomeli)
    • Non-Licensed 24 hour care Facilities (Williams, Mike Nichols, Pickard, Elder Haus I and II, McVey, Brown, Quinn, Kemer)
    • Drop in services in individuals/ apartments or family homes
  • The funding goes to the individual. Wherever the individual goes, the funding goes too. Money is used for staffing cost only.
    • Licensed vs Non Licensed vs Drop in
      • In the Licensed facilities Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities licenses and surveys these facilities with a set of standards. The provider is responsible for all aspects of the individual's life including financial, transportation and medical.
      • In the Non-Licensed facilities assistance is given for all aspects of individual's lives (based on the Individual Plan), but paid for by the individual using their benefits and work income.
      • With Drop-In Services, services are prescribed in the IP and only those services are provided. Services can be provided in individual apartments, homes or family homes.
  • The State assigns the money based on the needs of the individual as determined by the ODDP.
  • Level of Care is completed yearly. The amount received is set through the state.
  • Group home size is limited to no more than 4 people.

Supported Living (State Money)

  • Funding goes to the County Board to administer one time per year in a lump sum
  • Any extra money needed for services is given by the County Board
  • No Level of Care is needed
  • Services provided are prescribed in the Individual Plan
  • Services are provided in an individual’s apartment or home on a drop in basis
  • Since the IO Waiver has been an option, rarely is Supported Living used as a funding source for additional people.
