A detailed Individual Service Plan (ISP) is developed with each person using Supported Living service. The ISP, which also serves as a job description for Koinonia) identifies all services and supports necessary for an individual to be successful in the least restrictive setting. A Service and Support Administrator from the County Board of Developmental Disabilities develops the ISP with active input from the individual and guardian, family members, current caregivers, and any other individuals whom the individual would like to include in the process.
The ISP identifies needs in seven key areas: Choices and Options, Income, Housing, Health, Safety, Community Membership, and Personal Satisfaction.
Recognizing that individuals’ needs and preferences change over time, the ISP is a flexible plan which can be adjusted to as needed in the future.
