CAP-MR/DD Services & PBH - Waiver Services

CAP-MR/DD & PBH - Waiver Services
S.T.E.P’s Developmental Academy Inc.’s Community Alternatives Program for Persons with Mental Retardation/Developmental Disabilities (CAP-MR/DD
& PBH Waiver Programs) serve individuals who would otherwise require care in an intermediate care facility for individuals with mental retardation/developmental disabilities (ICF/MR). Our services allow these individuals the opportunity to be served in the community instead of residing in an institutional or group home setting.
