After the application has been received and we are aware of the type of support you are looking for, our Associate Team meets to determine if the agency is able to support you. We consider a variety of factors such as:
- are we skilled to provide the supports you require?
- do we have an opening within the program that you are interested in?
- is your funding adequate or in alignment with the supports you are requesting?
- do we have staff and management readily available to provide the supports you are requesting?
If the agency is unable to provide supports to you based on the information provided or current lack of space, the Director will contact you directly to make you aware of this. The Director will make you aware of any gaps and provide you with information to advocate for the resources or supports you may need.
If the agency is unable to provide immediate supports due to lack of space (vacancy), the Director will place you on an Agency Waiting List. You are encouraged to contact the agency every 4 weeks to check in to see if space has been made available.
Once the information is received and the Agency feels confident providing supports, a Planning Meeting will be set up.
