DCF Group Homes
Description: Marrakech has partnered with Milestones Behavioral Services, Inc. (formerly Connecticut Center for Child Development) to open a 24/7 residential home for children with Autism and other development disabilities who are under 21 years of age.
Currently, Marrakech is operating one home, located in Milford, which will provide 24 hour on-site residential staffing to 3 children attending the Milestones school program. The home is licensed by the Department of Children and Families and will be funded by the child’s LEA/School District.
Services that will be provided in the Residential setting include: direct care staffing, medication management (including administration), health care oversight/coordination, behavioral supports, coordination of recreational activities including community activities and habilitation services. As part of the rate, room and board and meals are included. However, if an individual requires a special diet such as gluten-free or nutrition supplements, parent/guardian (or district) will be responsible to supply or cover associated costs.
This new opportunity will provide children the chance to transition from living at home with their parents to community living and give the parents a chance to start planning their child’s age out/transition services upon turning 21 years of age.
Eligibility: The child must be a current student, under 21 years of age, and have a school district’s approval to receive residential placement funding.
