Member Profile for Systems of Support (SOS) Services

Members referred to Project Transition’s SOS Services are children and adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disability who also experience behavioral challenges that pose a risk to their safety and stability in the community. When a member has been found at risk and/or in crisis, Project Transition steps in to bridge the gaps of care that may be contributing to the triggers of crisis or failing to prevent it.

SOS members are:

  • Individuals whose past supports and treatment interventions have not been effective in preventing or stabilizing crisis
  • Those who have been determined by their insurance company as someone in need of more supports within their community because they are in and out of crisis cyclically
  • Those who have providers and loved ones who have been identified as needing training and/or consultation to support the individual effectively
