Access Services?

1) To initiate services you must phone your local county MH/MR office or Base Service Unit and ask for Central Intake.

2) After you have chosen dFs as a service provider your Supports Coordinator will contact our agency and make a written referral.

3) When we receive your referral, we will schedule an intake meeting.

4) At the intake meeting we will provide you with very detailed information about the services you have selected.

5) Your Supports Coordinator will then submit a request for funding to their fiscal office.

6) After the request for funding has been approved, the Supports Coordinator will notify dFs and we will schedule an Admission Meeting.

7) Your services will begin at a date and time determined during the Admission Meeting.
