Housing access coordination (HAC): A waiver service that helps people plan for, find and move to homes of their own that are not owned, leased or controlled by disability services providers.
A person is eligible to receive housing access coordination if he or she is enrolled on one of following waivers:
• Brain Injury (BI)
• Community Alternative Care (CAC)
• Community Access for Disability Inclusion (CADI)
• Developmental Disabilities (DD).
A person can use housing access coordination to move to his or her own home from any of the following settings:
• Family or corporate adult foster care homes
• Institutions for Mental Diseases (IMD)
• Intensive rehabilitation treatment and rule 36 settings
• Intermediate care facilities for persons with developmental disabilities (ICF/DD)
• Nursing facilities
• Registered housing with services establishments
• Unlicensed settings.
Housing access coordination is delivered in four stages:
Throughout my life, I have been dedicated to helping others. I have volunteered through our church, built homes in Haiti, fostered and volunteered with animal shelters and much more. I've spent the last 9 years of my life working at a school with children with special needs. I find that wherever I am, I'm called to work with people in need, to help them achieve their goals and dreams. As the Housing Access Coordination Manager, I'll strive to help find homes for people who are in need of our services. Although finding housing can sometimes be a long process, I will be dedicated to this position and put all of my effort into helping my clients to the best of my ability.
As a real estate agent, I work with clients to find (rent/buy/sell) residential housing; with Capable Hands Care, I will assist clients as they find and move in to suitable homes in the communities of the Twin Cities. Throughout my life, I have spent a lot of time serving others at LWBC (a summer bible camp for kids) in the kitchen, teaching classes, lifeguarding, and being a bunk counselor. My time spent at camp has allowed me to see the importance and reward of serving others and connecting with people. As a housing coordinator for Capable Hands, I look forward to connecting with others as we work to find the homes they desire. In my spare time, I love a good book, an afternoon in the sunshine on a summer day, flower gardens, fresh food, and watching movies with my family.
