Open Doors Transition Center
The Open Doors Transition Center (formally Money Follows the Person) assists residents of long term care facilities (whether nursing homes or intermediate care facilities) to transition back into the community. Transition specialists work with individuals and their family members or social supports on Community Preparedness Education, to make sure that people have the information and skills to return to the community, to identify barriers and services needed to make a successful transition, and to help find affordable, accessible housing that meets their needs.
