Martha's Barn, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit organization. Our vision was inspired by my daughter, Martha. She was diagnosed with autism at age 2. She is now 21 and living as independently as her circumstances permit, paying 'rent to own' her own home, with individualized support to help reach her goals. Following VT's Interagency White Paper on Best Practice has led her to gain skills promoting vocational opportunities and occupational goals. We are honored to share best practice approaches with others.
A Specialized Service Agency (SSA) is an organization, contracted by the Department of Disabilities, Aging, and Independent Living (DAIL), that provides developmental disabilities services through either a distinctive approach to service deliver and coordination or to meet distinctive individual needs.
The Internal Revenue Service plays an important role in the oversight of charitable organizations and recommends the adoption of a Conflict of Interest Policy. Within such a policy, both the President and the Secretary sign and certify their interest in protecting the organization from any arrangements that might benefit the private interests of an officer or director. The policy then defines who is an "interested person" within the organization, requires those with a conflict to disclose the conflict or potential conflict, and identifies the procedures in place for addressing any conflicts of interest. https://dvha.vermont.gov/global-commitment-to-health/conflict-of-interest-home-and-community-based-services
Martha's Barn, Inc. has its own conflict of interest policy that is available upon request.
Part 8 of the Regulations Implementing the Developmental Disabilities Act of 1996 describes the Grievances, Internal Appeals and the Fair Hearing processes, including the rights and obligations of applicants and recipients of services funded through Global Commitment. This section was updated October 2017.
