Recruiting

Consumers can receive numerous tips, advice and even job posting samples to aid them in the recruiting process through the Peer Mentor Program.

Excerpt from “Steps of the Hiring Process”:

Advertise: Successfully attracting the right people involves using multiple sources. There isn’t one single source that works all the time, so be open to advertising in various ways. (See attached “Quick Tips on Finding Personal Assistants.”) If you’d rather not be swamped with calls, you may have applicants respond to an e-mail address.

How to Become a Consumer

To use CDPA you must have Medicaid. If you do not have Medicaid but think you may be eligible for Medicaid and CDPA, contact your county Department of Social Services (DSS) or your Managed Care Organization (MCO). **CDChoices does NOT make determinations about eligibility for Medicaid or CDPA.
