The founder of reSOARces, Tina Scott, is also the executive director of a case management agency that has been serving individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Danville, Kentucky for ten years. When Tina took over that agency in 2012, she began to notice a variety of gaps in Medicaid’s case management services that had been leaving individuals with disabilities, their families, and the professionals who care for them, in the cracks.
As her agency served individuals who wanted to use Medicaid's Participant Directed Services program (click here for more information about PDS and our involvement), Tina began learning of the numerous barriers that all parties face in even trying to make that choice a reality. Some case management agencies hire an extra employee to address these barriers, but Tina realized that this solution still left impactful issues unresolved.
In her search to break down every barrier presented to the people she served, she knew that the complexity of the PDS program was the perfect starting point.
In February of 2019, reSOARces was born as a membership organization that would pursue the mission of filling these gaps for members, starting with those using the PDS program. Since its establishment, reSOARces has become a 501(c)(3) charitable organization providing a variety of needed services and support where adequate support did not previously exist. Our hope is to continue to expand our services and who we support.
