The Care Compact

Care compact logo. Interconnected lines with type "The Care Compact"The Care Compact (TCC) is an enhanced care coordination program that links existing case management and care coordination service providers. It is offered through Douglas County and a network of dedicated community partners.

The Care Compact supports individuals with mental health, substance use disorder or intellectual and developmental disability (IDD) needs. The Care Compact is specifically designed to serve adults involved in multiple systems who have complex and overlapping needs – for example someone with IDD who also has a chronic disease and mental health concerns. People who work with The Care Compact frequently have unmet basic needs, or their basic necessities are unstable.

How?

Based on a person’s needs TCC will create a Care Team, led by a Care Compact Navigator, that links systems and agencies involved in, or who could be helpful for, a person’s care to:

  • Streamline access to needed services
  • Navigate the complex system of care
  • Recommend services and resources to address needs
  • Offer support with overcoming barriers to care
  • Decrease reliance on emergency services for support

The following organizations are TCC partners. You may click on the links below to learn more about each partner’s services and specialty areas:

AllHealth Network, Colorado Access, Douglas County Department of Human Services, Douglas County Department of Community Development, Developmental Pathways, The Rock Church, The Arc Arapahoe/Douglas, Advent Hospitals, HealthONE Sky Ridge Medical Center, Signal Behavioral Health Network, 18th Judicial District Probation, Arapahoe Douglas Works!, Community Justice Services, Douglas County Community Response Team (CRT) program, Julota.

Who is Eligible?

To be eligible for The Care Compact:

  • You, or the person referred, must be 18 or older
  • Live in Douglas County
  • Be willing to sign the Universal Release of Information (U-ROI). Some agencies may require their own releases for information sharing. Your authorization to release information will allow at least two or more agencies to communicate, coordinate care on your behalf, and evaluate program impact

There must also be one or more of the following:

  • Mental Health concern or diagnosis
  • Substance Use Disorder/Substance Misuse concern or diagnosis
  • Intellectual and/or Developmental Disability concern or diagnosis

How to Access Services

If the basic eligibility requirements noted above are met, and you would like to submit a referral for yourself or someone else, please complete our community referral form.

If you have questions about eligibility, or would like to reach The Care Compact Navigator, please email [email protected]

Youth Care Compact

In 2023, The Care Compact expanded to include enhanced case management services for youth thanks to  grants from the Behavioral Health Administration (BHA) and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). This program is in a pilot phase. Currently, only community partners can refer youth to the program.

Following the pilot program, the goal is to fully launch a Youth Care Compact – with community referral access – in 2025.

About the Grant
The BHA grant is funding a Youth Care Compact Navigator, a dedicated Parent Liaison/case manager team, and a consultant to aid in program research, development, implementation and evaluation. The grant will also provide for care coordination training for the partnering network of care, and expansion of the program’s case management software to accommodate Youth Care Compact processes. The SAMHSA grant also includes funding for a Youth Care Compact Navigator.

If this is an emergency or you or someone you know is in crisis, dial 988 for 24/7 mental health support, or 911 for life threatening emergencies.
