Choice Voucher Services

What is the Choice Voucher?

Choice Voucher, formerly referred to as Self-determination, is not a new program, rather an evolving process and set of principles that supports people with disabilities in having control of their lives. It supports people's rights as citizens to control their resources so they can make their own choices, be part of their community, and have meaningful relationships. Choice voucher is another way of saying freedom. It is a basic human right. Choice voucher provides people who receive developmental disability and mental health services control in choosing the resources needed for support, freedom of choice, and the responsibility for their decisions and actions.

SCCMHA actively incorporates the principles and process of choice voucher into all programs and services.
