Agency with Choice

Agency With Choice Program

The Agency with Choice (AWC) program at the Barber National Institute is a financial management/participant-directed service available to individuals with an intellectual disability who reside in their own residence or the home of the family.

Participants have a high level of choice and control over managing their own services and supports. A joint relationship is formed between an individual and/or family member with the AWC family Liaison who provides administrative help to assist in managing services.

The goal of this support is to enable families to remain together in their own homes. The Barber National Institute's AWC program offers many services that individuals and families can choose from:

  • Home and Community Habilitation
  • Companion
  • Respite
  • Camps
  • Home and Vehicle Adaptations
