CCS Changes

Welcome to CCS Individual Services at A Better Way of Living!

As most of you know, our CCS group program is closing on November 15, 2017.  We will begin offering CCS Individual services beginning on Thursday, November 16, 2017.  Individualized community integration experience provides a wide range of benefits for individuals receiving services through the DD Waiver.  These include:

  • Enhanced opportunity to participate in individually desired activities
  • Opportunities to cultivate social relationships in desired environments
  • Opportunities to explore new activities of interest
  • Opportunity to work one-on-one with staff to develop community safety skills
  • And many more benefits

  • Welcome letter with program contact information (What you’re reading now)

While this is a comprehensive packet of information, we realize that not all questions may be able to be answered and a one-on-one conversation about a specific individual’s needs may need to take place.  Please feel free to contact the CCS Program Director, Ellen Neace at 505-332-9164 Extension 115 or via email at for any program information needed beyond this packet, or get in touch with CCS Service Coordinator David Randall at 505-332-9164 or via email at .
