Franklin County Community Services

Disability Services Coordination
Disability Services Coordination is designated as the "single entry point" for persons with disabilities. Franklin County's Mental Health/Disabilities Policies seek to provide individualized supports that ensure choice, empowerment, and community integration for persons with mental illness, intellectual disability, or other developmental disabilities, while effectively managing costs.

The Disability Services Coordination process includes determining eligibility, assisting with referrals to service providers, monitoring services, tracking all service costs, and establishing a quality assurance program.

Franklin County is part of Central Iowa Community Services (CICS), which was formed under Iowa Code Chapter 28E to create a mental health and disability service region in compliance with Iowa Code 331.390. Within this region, CICS is creating a regional system designed to improve health, hope, and successful outcomes for the adults in our region who have mental health disabilities and intellectual/developmental disabilities, including those with multi-occurring issues and other complex human service needs. 

In accordance with the principles enumerated in the legislative redesign, CICS will work in a quality improvement partnership with stakeholders in the region (providers, families, individuals, and partner health and human service systems) to develop a system of care approach that is characterized by the following principles and values:

  • Welcoming and individual-oriented
  • Person and family driven
  • Recovery/resiliency oriented
  • Trauma-informed
  • Culturally competent
  • Multi-occurring capable

CICS will maintain local county offices as the foundation to the service delivery system.
