What’s an Independence Coordinator?
Your Independence Coordinator is NOT a caseworker. You’re the one calling the shots now.
Your IC works with you. Use your IC to help you set goals, figure out how to get where you’re going and run through ideas. Sure, your IC will give you advice and walk you through consequences. But you decide. Some of your decisions will work out and some won’t. Either way, your IC will be there to help you plan your next move as long as you remain eligible for the Bridge to Independence program.
You’ll meet with your IC every month.
Monthly meetings are a must-do if you want to stay in the Bridge to Independence program. You can meet more often with your IC. It’s up to you and depends on your situation. You’ll also have one case review and one permanency hearing each year.
