Supports Brokerage


Orientation to Supports Brokerage


Supports Brokers are the linchpin of the self-directed service model, fostering independence, social engagement, and choice. This orientation provides an overview of self-determination, self-direction, and the basic principles of person-centered thinking and planning. Participants will learn how Supports Brokers collaborate with the person receiving supports, Support Coordinators, the Fiscal Intermediary, and Self-Directed Employees to bring the service plan to life. As part of this two-day training, future Supports Brokers will build skills in the areas of recruiting, hiring, training, and supervising Self-Directed Employees in partnership with those receiving supports. Building community connections and identifying supports outside of the formal service system will also be discussed.
