About Integral Care: As the largest provider of community based behavioral health services in Travis County, we are dedicated to improving the lives of adults and children living with mental illness, substance use disorder and intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Integral Care's mission of Healthy Living for Everyone promotes a philosophy of greater independence and improved quality of life for the people we serve. We aim high. If you do too, we want to talk to you.
Description: The Home and Community and Based Services (HCS) Program services people diagnosed with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities who live in a variety of non-institutional settings. Services are designed to meet the person's needs so they may remain in the community and have opportunities to participate in their community to the maximum extent possible.
As an HCS Service Coordinator you will monitor services and supports for individuals diagnosed with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities (IDD). In addition to IDD, many individuals you will serve will have mental health and/or medical diagnoses. Individuals served range in age from very young children to the geriatric population. You will have a designated caseload of individuals for whom you will work with to help improve their quality of life. You will provide these services in the community, including their place of residence, schools, day programming, etc. The service coordinator role is a dynamic position that entails working with the individuals and their support systems, facilitating meetings, crisis prevention and advocacy. As their service coordinator, you will not only monitor their HCS Services, but also help support individuals in leading meaningful and fulfilling lives.
