Individual Service & Support Advocacy (ISSA) – Madison & St. Clair Counties

DDSME staff provides Individual Service and Support Advocacy to individuals participating in the Illinois Home and Community-Based Waiver program. ISSA staff visit individuals in the waiver program quarterly. We participate in and review their service plans to ensure the needs, general well-being, and overall satisfaction of each person is being addressed.
