Family Care Program - Established first in 1998 as a pilot and later in 2007 as a regular entitlement program by the State of Wisconsin, Family Care is a comprehensive, innovative program combining service authorization and service provision into one single setting with the purpose of helping individuals maintain living independently and improve quality of life. It is designed to give members better choices about what kinds of services and supports they prefer to meet their individual needs.
The Project Access, Inc. Family Care Program is a contracted Care Management Unit (CMU) for the Milwaukee County Department of Family Care. With a multidisciplinary team of professionals, the program works with seniors and adults who have both physical disabilities as well as mental health issues. Currently our Family Care Program is the largest behavioral health provider for the Milwaukee Department of Family Care, serving over 480 Milwaukee County residents.
