New Providers Providers of services to people with developmental disabilities may be self-employed individuals (independent providers) or agencies. Because the health and safety of people accessing services through the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD) is important to us, DODD certifies both agency and independent providers of services. An individual or agency is prohibited from providing any service until certification is obtained from DODD Important Things to Know • A birth certificate is a required document and will need to be submitted as part of your application. • It is recommended that applicants first gather all documents (except the BCII) prior to completing the application. It is also recommended that you upload your documentation when the application system prompts you. • The BCII background check must be received directly from the Ohio Attorney General’s office. • Please be aware that during the review process, you may be asked to provide additional documentation. • Once your fee has been paid and your BCI background check has been received, your application will be submitted for review. DODD will review you application within 30 days of this submission date. • Following the review of your application and documentation by DODD, your information will be submitted to Medicaid for approval and issuing of a Medicaid number. • For new agency applicants: Medicaid will likely require and conduct a site visit of your agency prior to the approval of a Medicaid number. A change affecting applicants to be independent providers of transportation services: • If you are applying for a transportation service, you will need to provide an official driver’s abstract prepared by the Ohio BMV. The BMV reports on its website that the bureau will no longer provide an unofficial driving record (abstract) as a printable document. The BMV currently only allows a screen view of a person’s official driving record, but it contains no unique, identifying information. As a result, this unofficial driving record no longer meets the requirement of rule, which requires applicants of transportation services to submit a driving record (abstract) prepared by the BMV to the Department of Developmental Disabilities. Please keep in mind that rule requires a driving record (abstract) be prepared by the BMV no earlier than 14 calendar days prior to the date of the application.

YCS Alliance of Services opens its first home for youth with special needs

YCS Alliance of Services opens its first home for youth with special needs

The YCS Alliance of Services -- a collaboration between YCS Sawtelle and Our House - opens its first home in West Orange for four young adults with developmental disabilities who are in need of extensive and intensive round the clock care. Sawtelle Home will provide the best quality of life in a permanent, loving home environment. The Alliance is committed to providing residential care for young adults who are unable to remain in their homes because of the level of care necessary to meet all their needs. Each agency, individually and as an Alliance, has opened more than a half dozen homes since 2012. In addition, the Alliance is working closely with DDD's Returning Home New Jersey initiative to bring individuals with I/DD back from out-of-state placements and into community-based home-like settings that are closer to their families. Nearly one year ago on August 31, 2012 two New Jersey based, private, non-profit social service agencies officially joined forces to provide residential, employment services, volunteer opportunities and recreation programs for young adults with developmental disabilities. The YCS Alliance of Services, a partnership of Our House, Inc. and Youth Consultation Service (YCS), has since been working together to provide a continuum of services and residential services for young adults with developmental disabilities and challenging behaviors. With a combined annual operating revenue of approximately $82 million, Our House and YCS serve about 4,000 children teens and adults in more than 100 residential, educational, in-home and community based programs in 12 counties across the Garden State with a staff of over 1200 full-time and 500 part-time employees. "Between our two agencies, we'll be a comprehensive resource for the special-needs population," said Richard Mingoia, YCS President and CEO. Generally, YCS will continue to provide educational, residential and emergency in-home services, as well as participate in DDD's Children's Placement Enhancement Project (C-PEP) program, which serves children and adolescents with the most complex and challenging needs. "The variety of programs that both agencies can provide will offer greater opportunities to all the residents as they enter adulthood. Our House is excited about the opportunity to improve the lives of New Jersey's most vulnerable citizens," said Michele Wernsing, executive director of Our House. Our House opened its first group home for individuals with developmental disabilities in 1980 in Summit, NJ. With the success of this program and others, Our House now operates 28 homes in five counties. Residents are integrated into their communities and are given training, employment and volunteer opportunities commensurate with their abilities. For more than 90 years YCS has been providing intensive therapeutic care to children and teens. In 2010, YCS began working with the NJ Department of Human Services-Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) to provide residential and in-home care to children, teens and now young adults with similar challenges as well as cognitive limitations.
