Two CNY Health and Human Services Organizations Set to Merge
Two long-standing and well-known disability and health organizations are joining forces to help individuals and families.
One of the main reasons Transitional Living Services and Enable will merge is the shortfalls in government funding for programs that provide care and housing. Enable Executive Director Prudence York realizes the two agencies have some overlapping services, but also some unique strengths.
“and that is really the strength of our coming together. The services that come together are developmental disability services that we both offer. But individually we offer home care services, behaviorally health services, traumatic brain injury services and clinical services.”
York says a managed care model will be used to help physically- and developmentally-disabled clients. And she believes more services can be gotten to people who need them more efficiently from the joined agencies. Together Enable and T-L-S employ more than 900 caregivers and staff…with a combined budget of nearly 30 (M) million dollars.
