Everyone has the right to live the life they desire. Housing Access Coordination (HAC) is a four-step process in order to achieve and support a successful relocation. Person-centered principles and practices are applied to all our participants receiving long-term services and supports. We ensure that the people who are making a move from one residence to another are doing so based on planning that best suited to their needs. Placement Partners believes that what contributes to the quality of life is different for each person, culture, and community. Therefore, a support system that values the quality of life must be built on and driven by a desire to understand, respect and honor that which is valued by each person, culture, and community. To foster each person’s self-determination and independence, we shall ensure the use of person-centered planning principles at each stage of the process to facilitate the identification of the resident’s specific interests, goals, likes and dislikes, abilities and strengths, as well as support needs.
Placement Partners staff will take the time to know you better. Our goal is to grasp your needs through an assessment process that brings to light specific interests, goals, likes and dislikes, abilities and strengths, as well as support needs. These combined will allow us to identify opportunities that offer the greatest chance for success and move. This process will enable us, together, to set goals and develop a plan that leads to positive outcomes.
