We also provide Supports Coordination Services for the PFDS, Community Living, and Consolidated Waivers in Delaware County. Our person- centered planning and community focused approach to locate, coordinate, and monitor needed services and

With many years of combined experience, Your Choice Supports Coordination is led by two women who have dedicated their careers to serving individuals with Autism and Intellectual Disabilities. Our supports are customized to meet the needs of the person and their family members. What makes this organization unique is our customized approach, our low caseloads, and our low turnover rate.
