The Madison County Service Coordination distributed Christmas presents to 117 developmentally disabled individuals in Madison County. The MCSC is the Senate Bill 40 and Service Coordination organization which plans and coordinates essential services for individuals with developmentally disabilities.
The MCSC has three full-time service coordinators, an administrative assistant, and a Director of Service Coordination. They work with the Missouri Department of Mental Health to evaluate and coordinate services for those Madison County residents who need services.
Each of the Service Coordinators purchased Christmas presents for all individuals on their case load. Bethany Aubuchon distributed 38 gifts, Lora Dyess gave out 32 gifts, Angie Moore distributed 32 gifts. The Director of the program, Beth Baugh, had a smaller case load and distributed 14 presents to individuals on her case load. Brook Tonjum, the Administrative Assistant helped with the purchases and wrapping.
The gifts were handed out to the individuals at a party at the Calvary Church and the Madison County Council for the Developmentally Disabled. Gifts were personally delivered to any individual not able to attend one of these parties.
Funds for the gifts came from money saved by the program over the past year through efficient cost savings.
