About the CCS & CLTS Dual Program
The CCS & CLTS dually enrolled program is a community-based and recovery-oriented program that helps children with disabilities under the age of 22 and their caregivers through supports and service coordination that help children grow and live their best lives. Service facilitation includes partnering with an enrolled participant and family, helping to guide the team by coordinating services, and making appropriate service linkages to assist the person/family in meeting the stated goals.
When you enroll in CCS & CLTS, you work with a team to support your need. The team includes:
- Your child.
- Your family (parents, caregivers) and others you want to be involved.
- Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS).
- The county health and human services agency near you.
- A RISE Service Coordinator.
The team helps you apply for and get the right supports and services.
Everyone works to support your child with their needs.
