Medicaid ICF Program
FCRS operates four 24-hour staffed homes throughout Franklin County that offer safe, comfortable surroundings for individuals with developmental disabilities. Each small home features four to six condominiums with private bedroom and bathroom suites. Residents assist with cooking and eat meals together, share in social activities, and develop lifelong friendships with one another and the FCRS staff.
These Intermediate Care Facilities (ICF) are part of the Title 19 Federal Medicaid Program and are unique in their emphasis on providing active, formalized treatment plans customized for each individual that include goals and outcomes.
Highly trained staff are dedicated to helping each individual realize their full potential. Collectively, the nurses, behavior specialists, social workers, dieticians, and residential specialists provide assistance with:
- Daily hygiene needs
- Money management
- Grocery shopping
- Access to community activities
- Employment opportunities
- Social activities that encourage interaction
Regardless of the level of need, all individuals supported by FCRS are afforded rights and opportunities equal to those of all citizens.

Spotlight on: SANDRA
On the mornings Sandra doesn’t have to get up at 5:00 a.m. to get ready for her job at ARC Industries South, she loves to sleep in. It has been 23 years since Sandra moved out of her parents’ house and in with her new “family” in a home operated by Franklin County Residential Services as part of the ICF Program.
Over the years, Sandra has developed great relationships with FCRS staff members and she considers them part of her extended family. The ICF Program features staff on-site 24/7 to help residents both with daily needs and long-term goals. Sandra’s interests range from cooking and arts and crafts to eating out and attending book club.
A theater buff, Sandra has seen “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” 13 times, and loves to share the programs from the performances with visitors. She enjoys seeing comedies and going out to dinner with friends and family. Her mother lives close by and Sandra enjoys spending overnights at her home as well.
“FCRS is a godsend. It’s so wonderful to know Sandra is with FCRS and if something would happen to me it would be all right,” said Dodie Whitacre, Sandra’s mother. “It’s marvelous Sandra is learning all these new skills, too. We’re so lucky to have this kind of organization in Franklin County. It’s a perfect solution.”
