Service Coordination is a program provided through the Family Support Services department of the Disabilities Board of Charleston County (DBCC). We offer assistance with planning and accessing services that are available through the SC Department of Disabilities and Special Needs, to individuals with disabilities and their families. When a person is initially referred to DBCC, a service coordinator will be assigned to assist the person and the family through the eligibility determination process with the SC Department of Disabilities and Special Needs (SC DDSN).
Once eligibility is established, the service coordinator will complete a global assessment and, working with the individual and the family, develop a plan of supports. The plan of supports is a working document that identifies the individual’s needs, strengths, and goals. Once goals and needs for supports are identified, the service coordinator will help identify community and family resources to help meet those needs and goals. The service coordinator will also assist with advocacy, crisis intervention, consultation and collaboration as needed. The plan is completed yearly and monitored by the service coordinator at least quarterly. The service coordinator is responsible for documenting services provided and managing the budget for services that is provided through SC DDSN.
