The In Home Support Program is a dynamic program that provides individual supports for people with intellectual disabilities living in the counties of Goochland, Powhatan and Hanover. Services are innovative, flexible and tailored to the needs of the individual. We are a joint partnership between Goochland-Powhatan Community Services and Hanover Community Services.
We provide one on one service to help individuals and their families so that the individuals to whom we provide services can stay in their own home rather than go to an institution or a more restrictive environment. The service each person receives is based on their needs, the number of hours approved by Medicaid and goals agreed on by the individual and their family. Our focus is to train individuals to be as independent as possible so that they can live as independently as possible. Some of the things we do fall into the following categories:
Anyone who is over the age of 6, has a primary diagnosis of intellectual disabilities and lives in Hanover, Goochland or Powhatan County is eligible to receive services. Children under age 6 with significant delays may also qualify. Our Program is funded through the Medicaid Waiver.
