The Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with an Intellecutal Disability (ICF/IID) program is a community-based residential service option provided in homes with six or fewer individuals. This ICF/IID program provides similar services provided in an HCS residential home. The services include staff available to assist individuals with identified needs, access to medical care, the opportunity to attend Day Habilitation or similar programs, and participation in community activities.
If you choose to access the ICF/IID residential option, you are able to keep your current placement on interest lists for home and community- based waiver services, such as HCS, Texas Home Living, Community Living Assistance and Support Services, and Deaf Blind with Multiple Disabilities programs.
In addition to ICF placement assistance, our intake department can assist you with obtaining community services such as day habilitation, respite, and community supports, as well as, getting you placed on the HCS and TxHML Medicaid Waiver Program interest lists. We will work with you to obtain information about your needs, schedule you to meet with our psychologist to determine if you are eligible for services, and, if you are eligible, assign a service coordinator to you to help develop a service plan based on your preferences and needs using a person centered and trauma informed approach. Please contact our Intake hotline number at 1-888-831-6618 for more information and assistance.
