Caring Partners CMO is focused on serving children and adolescents
with serious emotional and behavioral challenges, and their families. Traditionally,
services available to these youngsters have been directed by the door through which
they entered the system. Mental health, DYFS, juvenile justice, education and substance
abuse often have different sources of funding and varying levels of services. Few
in-home community services and supports have been accessible or identified.
Partners CMO is designed to help provide a broad array of formal and informal supports
and services for these children and their families. The services are community based
and individually tailored, they are flexible and outcome based and services, management
and decision making responsibilities rest at the community level.
Caring Partners CMO is the Care Management Organization designated to innovate and
implement approaches to a wide array of effective community and grass roots services
and service delivery. Our philosophy is that service plan development for children
with serious emotional and behavioral challenges is an interactive process and a
collaborative effort between the family, child and community providers. Service
planning is based upon the “wraparound process”,
which recognizes and builds on the strength of the family and community to devise
strategies that help children lead lives as normal as possible.
We believe that the most effective supports and services are delivered in the community.
Community based organizations help us help families increase their choice and independence.
We develop affiliation agreements and encourage partnerships within our network
of providers. Funds to pay for non-traditional services are available.
