The common thread among all services and programs is safety, continued growth and self improvement.
On the adult side, some folks need help in learning basic activities of daily living skills and others require more advanced training in independent living skills to include things such as cooking, interpersonal skills or behavior management to enable them to live safely in the community.
Adolescents and children may need Case Management services to assist in obtaining necessary community supports or to act as an advocate. Infants and toddlers receive speech, occupational and physical therapy, service coordination and educational instruction from qualified staff to improve physical and cognitive delays or disabilities they may have.
All services are person or family-centered and the involvement of the individual and/or family is critical to meeting their identified needs.
It is a shared vision and a shared responsibility which requires involved parties to work together for a common goal.
Transportation is provided for all services and is a critical part of getting folks to and from services from the Chesapeake Bay –Bridge Tunnel to the Maryland line and Tangier Island.
CSB staff receive comprehensive training including CPR, positive behavioral supports, medication management as well as Human Rights and many other service specific areas. Maintaining qualified and dedicated staff is a goal we strive for and although turnover does occur, many staff have been with the agency for 20+ years.
Funding is primarily through Medicaid for most services, with the exception of Infant Intervention, which has some Medicaid billable services but is mostly state funded through a federal grant. Other funding sources for various services include grants and local matching funds.
