The EHN Day Habilitation location is a comprehensive Learning Center which allows EHN to provide services to its IDD consumers at one centralized location. We provided both recreational and pre-vocational activities to help consumers learn how to be more active in the community. The curriculum also includes life skills lessons to encourage independence and allows consumers to move between classrooms where they are engaged in such courses as math, science, writing, dance and art classes throughout the day.

Emergence Health Network, together with local providers of community-based services and supports established a Continuum of Care “road map” highlighting IDD resources available in the greater El Paso area.

The effort resulted in a thorough picture of the challenges and opportunities that providers, consumers and their support network face when navigating the complex system of service for individuals with IDD. The outcome is a living document which local providers can update as changes in service provisions occurs.

Intermediate Care Facilities (ICF) for individuals with IDD is an additional service that EHN offers. EHN also refers to our ICF’s as our EHN Casas because we provide residency for our qualified IDD consumers. Here, the IDD individuals can live independently and also get comprehensive and individualized health care and rehabilitation services.

EHN currently operates four ICF/Casas in the El Paso area.

START (Systemic, Therapeutic, Assessment, Resources and Treatment) is a person-centered solution-focused approach that employs positive psychology and other evidence-based practices. It’s a national initiative that strengthens efficiencies and service outcomes for individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities and behavioral health needs in the community. The model helps reduce the use of emergency services and state facility/hospital stays.

Outcomes also include:

  • High rates of satisfaction by families and care recipients
  • Cost-effective service delivery
  • Improved expertise across system of care
  • Strengthened systems linkages that enrich systems, increase resources and fill in service gaps
  • Increased professional and logistic linkages between services providers in multiple disciplines
  • Use of community services whenever possible
