APD Area 7


APD-AmeriCorps—Area 7

Orange, Osceola, Brevard and Seminole Counties

The APD-AmeriCorps project in Area 7 will assist APD staff with matching community resources and qualified volunteers to serve eligible individuals on the agency Wait List for services.

In the state of Florida, there are about 49,000 people with developmental disabilities eligible for funding from the Home and Community Based Services Waiver which provides services outside of institutional settings and in the home and community. Of these people, there are more than 19,000 on a waiting list to be enrolled in this funding program.

In Orange, Osceola, Brevard and Seminole Counties (Area 7), there are 2,292 individuals on the wait list as of October 2010. Of these, 714 are over the age of 22 and therefore are no longer receiving services through the school system.

APD-AmeriCorps will support efforts to connect existing community resources; assist individuals with preparation for volunteer or work experiences; and recruit additional volunteers and AmeriCorps members who can receive training for future service opportunities.
