Group Homes (ICF / MR) - TTCMHMR owns and operates three ICF/MR homes in Hidalgo and Willacy counties for individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disability and/or autism. The homes range from Level I - VI with 24-hour shift staff. Placement in these homes is based on the availability of space and resources through the Texas Department of Human Services. In-Home & Family Support - Individuals with a mental disability who require financial resources to live independently in situations most like those experienced by persons without disabilities, may apply for assistance through the In-Home & Family Support program. Funding requests are reviewed by a committee and if deemed ineligible, applicants are referred to other possible funding sources. Respite Services - Short-term, periodic relief and support is offered for individuals with mental retardation and their families. Care is provided by a trained respite worker and may be conducted in the home or in an out-of-home situation, dependent on the availability of a provider and budget resources.
