How do I access CAP Services?
There are 3 waiver services for people with disabilities.

How do I get a job coach?
Kaleo Supports, Inc. provides job placement and job coaching services through contract with the North Carolina Division of Vocational Rehabilitation Services. People interested in this service usually begin by going through the local VR Office and attending an orientation about the service. If eligible, a counselor is assigned and he or she with input from you writes your individual plan of employment. People have choice in who they would like to provide the service.
What should be in a Person Centered Plan?
The plan should lead to meaningful outcomes. It should assist a person with accessing his or her community in productive ways. It is not enough to say that a person receives a specific number of hours per day of service, but rather what benefit is gained through the service. Kaleo Supports takes great pride in achieving outcomes.
Can I help select my staff?
Most certainly! Kaleo Supports completes employee screenings, background checks, driving record checks, health care registry checks and at least two reference checks. Applicants are interviewed first before meeting families to insure they measure up to the standards of Kaleo Supports. Families can also add specific duties to the job description if they so desire.
