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 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.
Pamula Mills, PhD. joins The Coordinating Center as its new Director, Coordination of Community Services. Dr. Mills is a clinical psychologist who is passionate about mental health and supporting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Prior to coming to The Center, Dr. Mills was the Program Director of a nonprofit, Valentine Community Services in Washington, DC, responsible for the management of supported living, day habitation, and companion services for individuals with intellectual disabilities and psychiatric disorders. Dr. Mills is skilled in program development and execution, quality oversight, training, and compliance.
“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.
