The best care begins with building a solid support system.

Self-direction puts you in charge of choosing and managing Direct Care Professionals and scheduling the supports and services you want. PAS provides clerical, administrative, and payroll support that makes getting your services easier, so you can focus on what makes life enjoyable and rewarding. At PAS, we offer both Fiscal Management Services and Representative Payee Services.
