SDS Services

Fiscal Intermediary for Self-Directed Services

CFS SDS utilizes various OPWDD opportunities to help meet individuals needs in a truly person-centered way. Our approach allows individuals to participate in community-based opportunities of choice as well as in home learning. As an FI we look forward to providing billing and administrative support for individuals and families that choose self-direction. We also look to be a meaningful part of your circle to give life to your vision of self-directed services. If you are interested, please contact us!
