Our mission is to serve individuals with love, dignity and respect in the environment of their choice. We have a strong faith that each individual has been created for a special purpose and we enjoy helping others live to their fullest potential, emphasizing their gifts.
WHAT IS THE HCS WAIVER AND PROGRAM?
The HCS waiver is a Texas Medicaid program administered by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHSC). The program provides individualized services and supports to people with intellectual disabilities who are living with their families, in their own homes or in other community settings, such as small group homes where no more than four people live. The local authority provides service coordination.
