In its more formal offering self-directed support is labeled Consolidated Supports and Services, CSS is a support option offered by The Arc of Rensselaer County. It gives the individual and their family the opportunity to co-design and direct their supports. In CSS, we can provide service start-up and brokerage services, act as a fiscal administrator and provide the supports as identified by the individual.
We don't know where we would be without The Arc of Rensselaer County. They have been our lifeline for nearly forty years.
