Self-Direction

In its more formal offering self-directed support is labeled Consolidated Supports and Services, CSS is a support option offered by The Arc of Rensselaer County. It gives the individual and their family the opportunity to co-design and direct their supports. In CSS, we can provide service start-up and brokerage services, act as a fiscal administrator and provide the supports as identified by the individual.

The Arc of Rensselaer County has spent several years learning to have partnerships with the individual and their family to have successful support arrangements. We have many people living life in the way that they desire, either by themselves or with non-disabled roommates or paid neighbors. Many people have jobs, volunteer opportunities or even going to College. For more information please contact by email Lisa Anderson at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Testimonials and Success Stories

Over the past three years, I have worked at the Arc,  I have found a team that has helped me to grow and reaches new heights in my abilities. Although every day is never the same, I find such satisfaction in the support I both give and receive from a wonderful community of families, hard workers and individuals all with the same goal -- to live extraordinary and meaningful lives.
