The typical process when you know the individual you want to provide your services is . . .
1. The individuals must apply and be hired.
Background checks and reference checks must be completed prior to being offered a position at TRC. Staff can not work until they are officially hired and all background checks are completed. Currently, all Respite staff are hired as employees (not contractors) and are paid $9/hour for every hour worked, whether day or overnight hours.
2. We need information about the individual that will receive services.
You will need to contact us to start this process. It is very helpful to have a copy of your current case plan so that we can prepare the necessary paperwork in advance. We know your time is valuable and we want to make it as simple as possible. You can sign a release and ask that this plan be sent via mail, fax (515.277.1963), or email the Director, Missy Ringgenberg, at firstname.lastname@example.org
3. Once we've discussed the services needed, we will need an approval from your case manager or DHS service worker. This Notice of Decision will specify the start date and the number of hours approved.
