What Is Fix The List?

People with developmental disabilities and their families have repeatedly told us Ohio's waiting list for Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) waivers is overly complex and in need of simplification.  The current waiting list confuses people with developmental disabilities and their families, misleads advocates, and hinders efforts by policymakers to direct resources to where they are needed most.

To better serve Ohioans with developmental disabilities, the organizations listed below have been collaborating for more than 15 months to modernize Ohio’s failed Medicaid Waiver waiting list. We believe replacing the current system will greatly improve the way Ohio’s waiting list for HCBS waivers operates.

WorkNet Transition

Throughout 2017, we worked to complete our federally-mandated transition out of providing direct services through our community employment division called WorkNet.  We have invited new employment service providers to Union County so individuals have many service provider choices in order to choose a provider that best meets their needs.  We have helped dozens of individuals meet new service providers that they trust and we have passed the torch of being a leader in Ohio for employing individuals in the community to our service provider partners.  Together, with our provider partners, we will collaborate and strive to support individuals in Union County with a developmental disability and will continue to be a leader, supporting individuals to work in their community.


The WorkNet staff will continue to support each individual’s employment journey by working with providers to coordinate jobs with people seeking employment and being an employment resource.  However, WorkNet will no longer exist as a separate program.  In the near future, information typically found through WorkNet, including employment resources and staff contact information, will be available through the Support Services division.

Community employment staff




March 3 - April 15, 2018, providers of day program and employment supports across Ohio -- including 20 in the Southwest Ohio region -- will be opening their doors, both in real time and online, in order to talk about how they are transforming the way they support people from a facility-based focus toward a community-based one.   


Transformation-at-a-Glance is a great opportunity for providers, county board staff, families, individuals, and other stakeholders, to network, ask questions, and discover great ideas on how to improve both services and lives.


Each presenting provider will talk about how they are making change happen around 5 key areas that matter:  Assessment, Planning, Implementation, Evaluation, and Service Innovation.  They will be offering up real-world ideas and solutions.  




Here's the link to profiles, dates and times, as well as a link to RSVP, for all the Transformation-at-a-Glances happening across the state:
