April HHP of the Month!

Please join us in congratulating Jon Moir, the April Host Home Provider of the month!

Jon was nominated for Host Home Provider of the Month by the Denver Metro 2 Team. According to Residential Coordinator, Raymond, Jon makes the nomination choice extremely easy with his consistency and longevity. Jon is always on top of everything and on the rare occasion that I need to ask him for something he will respond quickly. Jon has expressed that D is like his family member and he takes care of her as if she were! With the help of D’s awesome parents, both guardian and HHP are always in sync to ensure D is safe and all appointments are taken care of. Recently, with the roll out of our new SCOMM’s, as I was training Jon on how we planned to change things, and he had already taken initiative of how to effectively implement his HHP duties! I would again like to say to Jon, thank you for always taking care of business and being committed to being your best. Your great attitude and attention to detail is the foundation of D’s success. Congratulations on being nominated for HHP of the month!

Finance Department News

The Finance Department

The start of this year has been busy with the implementation of a couple major payment process changes. We are excited to offer more frequent and efficient methods of payment for our providers, vendors and people in services. The updates made so far include the implementation of bi-weekly payroll for our HHPs, and more visibility and autonomy when generating payments through bill.com.

Bill.com: Improving Ease of Pay

Bill.com is an accounts payable automation software that helps us streamline processing payments. What does this do for us? It allows us to get more clarity, security, and personalization with the payments we process for our payees. This also enables payees to have more control over how they are paid as they can update the banking information, address, or contact information we have on file in real time. Additionally, it enables payees to see what invoices we have processed, are currently processing, and have not yet received. For help setting up and accessing your payee account, e-mail us at accountspayable@supportinc.com.

Moving provider payments to ADP

In line with what we announced last year, we have begun the process of moving the payment method for our Host Home Providers and Family Care Giver Independent Contractors into ADP. This is a three-step process. First, transitioning our HHPs to a bi-weekly pay schedule, then finalizing the creation of the ADP platform for them, finally repeating the process for our FCG-ICs. As it stands, our HHPs have transitioned to a bi-weekly pay schedule enabling them to begin seeing payment for their work sooner each month. We are very excited about this transition as it marks the potential for our HHPs to experience an increase in ease of bill payment, and financial management. We are currently working closely with our HR team and the ADP developers to finalize the move into ADP. Once we have our HHPs fully settled in ADP we will focus on the third wave of the process which will include our FCG-ICs.

What is ADP?

ADP is a self-service portal where you can maintain your banking information, access historical payment records and upload compliance documents. We wanted to take this opportunity to remind everyone that the most efficient way to receive payment from us is to sign up for ACH (or direct deposit).

More on HHP Bi-Weekly Pay

Below is the pay schedule our HHPs are currently following. The first two dates clarify the date range they are being paid for. The third date is when they can expect to see that direct deposit in their account. Please note that if you are set up for physical checks rather than direct deposit, you are subject to the processing times of the US Postal Service impacting when your check arrives. Again, we encourage everyone to sign up for ACH (or direct deposit)

If this schedule is still unclear, please e-mail us at accountspayable@supportinc.com where we will be happy to respond to your questions and requests.

Personal Property Inventory- The why and how

This month we are focusing on personal property inventory and some tips to maintaining inventory! Every person
receiving services who lives in a host home or independent apartment needs to have a complete personal property inventory in Therap.

Why is it necessary to maintain an inventory?
1. Waiver participants receive personal needs funds from social security. Colorado Department of Public Health
and Environment (CDPHE) regulations require that when a person receives these funds there must be a
complete, accurate and current inventory of all the persons’ belongings.
2. If the person ever moves, the RPC will review the inventory to assure all the person’s belongings have been
moved with them.
3. Maintaining an accurate and current inventory reduces discrepancies over who an item belongs to and assists in
the resolution of disputes and/or missing belongings.
4. If your home ever experienced a natural disaster such as, fire, flooding, tornado, etc, this inventory serves as
documentation of the person’s possessions which would assist in the recovery/ reimbursement of destroyed

Tips to maintaining the person’ inventory:
1. At the end of each month, when organizing the person’s receipts to turn into Support, Inc. go into the persons
Therap personal property inventory and log each new item they purchased.
2. Each month, review the inventory with the person. If there are items they have donated or thrown away, update
the inventory to indicate the date and reason.


Celebrating Stephan and Melissa’s Special Day!

Support, Inc. Helps Individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Live Life to the Fullest! Please read about Stephan and Melissa’s wedding below.

“The Support, Inc. team utilizes a unique, whole-person approach that allows our caregivers to develop a deep understanding of each individual’s needs,” explains Kayla Ribron, Associate Director with Support, Inc. “We work with each of our individuals to identify and set manageable goals to help them make their dreams a reality. For Stephan Fury and Melissa Allen this meant finally having the wedding of their dreams after being together for five years.”

Stephan and Melissa have mild intellectual disabilities. The couple worked with Ribron, the Residential Coordinator at the time, and their Support, Inc. care team to plan the wedding. Melissa wanted the big event to have a country feel – she wanted to wear cowboy boots and incorporate the colors black, white and turquoise. It was also important to the couple to have the ceremony near water since that is where Melissa feels closest to her mother who passed away.

“We worked together to decide on a location for the ceremony and the reception,” says Ribron. “The special couple led the planning, tasted and picked the food, and enjoyed every moment. It was my pleasure to accompany Melissa and her maid of honor to the bridal boutique to try on and pick out her wedding dress. We even had a video call with Stephan’s mom to make sure she got to be a part of the experience. It was so special and such a privilege to accompany her on that special day.”

In September of 2022, Stephan and Melissa had a beautiful wedding ceremony and reception. Their families traveled from near and far to be there.

“The Support, Inc. team specializes in designing innovative creative budgets so the individuals and families we serve can utilize their waiver funds in the most person-centered way,” says Ribron. “Because of our unique structure, we were able to use Stephan and Melissa’s waiver budget to pay for the wedding including their honeymoon trip to travel to Galveston. Throughout their relationship, Stephan and Melissa have supported each other through thick and thin. They recently moved into a new apartment and are loving it. The love these two have for one another is unmatched. They help each other grow and learn and really listen to each other’s needs. It has been a joy to see their love and union grow and I cannot wait to see what the future has in store for them.”
