Admissions

We appreciate your interest in The Village.  We are a community-based program for people with developmental disabilities.  We support the physical, emotional and social well being of the Villagers through a wide range of programs that are tailored to each individual’s ability and potential.

The Day Habilitation Program at Village at Plum Valley provides services for adults (18 years and older) with developmental disabilities.  In addition, we provide an after-school care and summer programs for children and adolescents (5 – 22 years).

Admissions Process

Our admissions process has several steps which are outlined below.

1.  Initial Inquiry

After reviewing our web site, please contact us by phone or email with a brief description of your needs and the programs and services you may require.  Complete the form below to send an email to our Admissions Department.

2.  Tour & Intake Form

After discussing your needs with us, if you feel The Village can provide the programs and services the applicant requires, please contact us to make arrangements to schedule a tour of Village at Plum Valley (our Pre-Vocational Program location), the Village Community Center (our Enrichment Program location) and The Village Multi-Purpose Building (our Vocational Program location) and/or Village at Stoney Glen (Assisted Living Facility) and Village at Hickory Glen (Independent Living) for residential options.  Tours are scheduled weekly. Please contact the Admissions Manager to set a tour date and time.

3.  ADMISSIONS PACKET & INTERVIEW

If you determine after the tour that The Village has the programs and services to suit your needs, you can complete an application and return it to our Admission’s Manager with a $50 application fee.  This check will not be cashed unless the applicant is accepted into the program.  It will be returned to you if the applicant is denied admittance.

You can receive an application by completing the form above to request it be mailed or emailed to you or you can download it off of our website. You may complete forms in advance of your tour and turn them in to us when you arrive or you may return completed applications directly to the Admission’s Manager.

Our Admissions Committee will then conduct a complete review of the application you provide. If the Committee determines after their initial review that we may be able to serve the applicant you will be asked to meet with the Admission’s Committee in person for further evaluation.

4.  ADMISSIONS COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

After the face to face meeting the Admissions Committee will notify you of their recommendation.  It is possible that the Admissions Committee may determine that further evaluation may be needed prior to making a decision regarding admission of a candidate.  Candidates may be recommended for admission on a probationary basis.

Although it is rare, a candidate may not be recommended for acceptance as a client. If this is the case your $50 application fee will be returned.

Depending upon current placement availability, you will be notified as soon as possible if the applicant is being placed on an interest list or if a place in the appropriate program(s) is currently open.  (Please note it is not necessary to tour our facilities in order to be placed on our interest list for any of our programs.  You may choose to submit a completed application to be placed on an interest list and schedule a tour at a later date.)

5.  Enrollment

If the candidate is accepted, the staff will schedule a meeting with the family in order to complete the final enrollment paperwork.  The staff and the family will develop an individualized plan for the candidate.  Long-term goals and plans will be delineated at this time.

FEES

Service fees are charged according to the level of need of the participant and the number of days they attend the program each week. Fee’s also vary according to the length of time that the individual spends at the program per day.  To get an exact cost for the services you would require please contact the Admission’s Manager.

If you have Medicaid eligibility and are a StarPlus member you may be eligible for Community First Choice through a Managed Care Option.  This can help pay for day programming, transportation, assisted living and respite. Call us for more information on this new program that started in June 2015.
