Millersville – Maryland – The Coordinating Center, Maryland’s statewide, premier nonprofit care coordination organization for children and adults with disabilities and complex needs is excited to announce that The Center is now accepting referrals from the Maryland Developmental Disabilities Administration’s (DDA) Coordination of Community Services (CCS) Program in the Central and Southern Region of Maryland. The DDA is the primary State agency that funds community-based services and supports for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and the CCS program enables participants and their families to gain access to critical resources and Medicaid Waiver services that encourage self-sufficiency, health and safety and real community participation.
Megan Rochon, M.S. joins The Coordinating Center as its new Director, Coordination of Community Services. Rochon is a passionate leader and advocate for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities with more than 15-years of experience in customer service, human services, education and training, and compliance. Rochon began her career in residential services providing training, supervision, and quality assurance for several group homes funded by the DDA. Prior to joining The Center, Rochon supported children and adults with disabilities and their families with obtaining critical services through Maryland’s Medicaid Waiver programs and later worked as an agency wide Compliance and Quality Officer for a DDA funded agency, which provided community living services, supported employment/vocational services, meaningful day, nursing and adult medical day services.
“We are thrilled to join the DDA community in providing CCS services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The Coordinating Center is deeply committed to conflict-free case management services, person- and family-centered care, and its mission, which is to partner with our clients and those who support them in the community to achieve their aspirations for independence, health and meaningful community life,” said Teresa Titus-Howard, PhD, MHA, MSW, President/CEO of The Coordinating Center.
