About Our Parent-Directed program

The Parent-Directed Program (PDP) is a one-of-a-kind service for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, who live with a family member or in their own home, and would like to take a more active role in directing services.

Why choose our Parent-Directed Program?

Our Parent-Directed Program offers freedom and empowerment to individuals and families by giving them the authority to:

  • Recruit and handpick your own direct service and support staff to recommend for hire by our agency.
  • Direct the scheduling of staff at your home, allowing for a great deal of flexibility as support and service needs change.
  • Choose a competitive pay rate based on a set scale from Boundless.
  • Enjoy increased staff retention and greater quality and continuity of care.

How we help

Our agency works with families and the individual to:

  • Monitor compliance for the services and supports provided.
  • Provide training and support to our employees and families.
  • Offer resources to family’s needs.
  • Attend team meetings at the family’s request to offer our support and expertise when challenges arise with their loved one care.
  • We DO NOT recruit caregivers.

How can I get started with PDP?

To become part of PDP, contact your county board SSA and select PDP as your waiver provider.
