Getting More From Your Support Coordination Agency With MOCEANS
What makes the MOCEANS approach to Support Coordination different?
We think that it all starts with the four pillars of our approach:
MOCEANS Support Coordination Is Built on Relationships
We think our approach builds better relationships. Those better relationships get better results. The Person-Centered Planning Tool and Individualized Service Plan aren’t just boxes to be checked. These documents are part of a discovery process. We listen, learn about your goals, and understand what you need us to do to provide the support you need.
We’ve had the same approach to building strong relationships throughout our three decades of service to the individuals and communities of Monmouth and Ocean counties. So, you benefit from the knowledge, experience, and resources that we can tap into based on the strength of our existing relationships.
MOCEANS Support Coordinators Are Advocates In Action
We believe that building strong relationships makes us better advocates. Our holistic approach to advocacy includes educating and empowering the individuals we work with so they can take control of their supports and services.
We consider every aspect of your plan—from your intellectual, emotional, and spiritual aspirations to the physical, social, and occupational supports you need to achieve fulfillment. We use our relationships in the community and beyond to find the resources you need to reach those goals and then exceed your own expectations.
MOCEANS Training Aims for Continuous Improvement
We believe that we can always get better at what we do. Our team is continually learning and participating in training that improves our ability to serve each individual that we work with.
When you choose MOCEANS as your Support Coordination Agency, you get a whole team of advocates. We are dedicated to delivering services and supports that achieve the goals you set.
Our team is comprised of:
- A Program Supervisor who has more than 25-years of experience working in the disability field
- A Lead Support Coordinator who leads our outreach and provides direct services and intensive support to our team members
- A team of qualified Support Coordinators, all of whom reside in Monmouth and Ocean Counties
- A dedicated Quality Assurance Clerk and an Administrative Assistant.
Our decades of experience are a solid foundation. But we are never satisfied until you are.
MOCEANS is Committed to Quality Support Coordination Services
We go above and beyond the standards set by the Division of Developmental Disabilities. That is the goal—wherever, whenever, and however, we can.
All of our Individualized Plans are reviewed by a Supervisor. Our process includes regular check-ins. We follow-up with individuals, their support networks, service providers, and employment support agencies to ensure that the highest standards are being set and met.
