Employment

Supports Coordination Team

Network180 employees make a difference in people's lives every day, making our community a better place to live.

Over the next several months, Network180 will begin to directly provide supports coordination services for Kent County adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities instead of providing these services through contracted agencies.  

 

We are hiring many people for the positions of Supports Coordinator and Supports Coordinator Supervisor.

We desire to preserve continuity in supports coordination by hiring supports coordinators from existing contracted agencies when possible.

Network180 is holding two informational meetings for people who may be interested in applying for these positions. Attendance is not required to be considered for a position at Network180.

Background on the Supports Coordination Transition:

The regional behavioral healthcare landscape has created significant challenges and opportunities in recent years.  As Kent County’s public behavioral health safety net, Network180 is looking at all areas of our system to see how we can best serve Kent County residents as we strive to meet new management, funding and legal expectations. 

Network180 has determined that directly delivering supports coordination will: 

  • increase consistency and equity in services for individuals;
  • provide improved system management and agility; and,
  • allow our system to more fully meet federal requirements around conflicts of interest.  

There will be no reductions or other changes in services for individuals due to this transition. 

This change is not undertaken lightly.  It was decided after months of evaluation, discussion with contracted providers, and consideration of alternatives.  Continuous high-quality care for individuals served is paramount as our system completes this shift. 

Network180 is committed to working collaboratively with contracted agencies to support a seamless transition experience.  Network180 is also sharing information about potential opportunities for current supports coordinators who may be interested in Network180 employment.
