Expanded Community Services (ECS)
Participation in this program requires a referral from Home and Community Services.
The Expanded Community Services (ECS) program serves individuals who reside in Adult Family Homes who hold the Expanded Community Services contract in Lewis, Thurston, Cowlitz and Grays Harbor County. The Behavior Support Specialists work directly with the individual, Adult Family Home staff, behavioral health providers, PCPs, Home and Community Services, Crisis teams, and other contacts to support the individual in their community placement. A Behavior Support Plan and Crisis Plan is used to manage challenging behaviors to decrease the risk of hospitalizations and ensure community placement is successful.
Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) – Assertive Community Treatment is an evidenced based treatment model meant to work with some of our most vulnerable citizens who suffer from chronic and severe mental health disorders and substance use disorders. This program is community based, we meet the clients where they are at and assist them with a variety of tasks, including compliance with the legal system, medication monitoring, counseling and assisting with activities of daily living. Caseloads for this program are small and clients have multiple contacts throughout the week by multiple team members. The team has a shared caseload, where almost all clients know every staff member. The clients have a 24/7 phone that can be utilized by our Mobile Crisis Team to contact ACT Staff to prevent hospitalizations and incarcerations by having a familiar face while they are in crisis.
Offender Re-entry Community Safety Program (ORSCP): In the Offender Re-entry Community Safety Program clients are referred by the Department of Corrections prior to release from Prison to receive extra help with housing and basic needs, which reduces the recidivism of these clients returning to prison. Clients are often also supported by the ACT Team while in this program. They receive assistance with housing and activities of daily living and receive assistance in remaining compliant with court ordered activities.
