In 2003, Henderson Haven (HH) began providing services under the Medicaid Waiver program in Florida – a program providing funding for community based and residential based services. Knowing Florida offered very little in terms of providing choice and inclusion, we were determined to help ensure everyone was given this opportunity. This started our journey of trying to find creative ways to fill the gap of meeting the needs for those we serve in all our programs. From advocacy to full inclusive living, our programs needed to reach all ages and perceived functioning levels as well as working with families to help fulfill their needs. By presuming competence in every individual we serve, utilizing a full range of tools and skills, and partnering with other agencies, we’re able to see results unattainable by programs relying on a single discipline, such as ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) or other therapies, which focus on the problem and not the individual.
