This outstanding program serves children from birth up to age 3. By providing families with resources, information and supoort, as well as much needed speech, occupational and physical therapy, many of these children leave the program at peer level. This program is funded through the Alabama Department of Rehabilitation Services and serves children and their families year round.
Adult Case Management
Better named Service Coordination, this service helps link individuals with needed services. A Service Coordinator will spend time getting to know the individual and their family. They will learn the likes, dislikes, dreams, hopes and aspirations. Then, armed with this knowledge, they set about trying to help them make their dreams a reality.
Opportunities to learn new skills related to daily living, gain vocational skills or just interact with friends and opportunities to use services in the community accessed by every other citizen to enhance their lives are a part of this process. Our Service Coordinators are hardworking professionals dedicated to empowering individuals and families.
SCOPE currently operates a number of group homes in three (3) counties. These homes have 1 to 6 individuals living in them with a 24 hour staff. In addition to these homes, there are individuals living in their homes, either apartments by themselves or with family that receive in-home support to help them continue to live independently.
