Region VII/The Moore Center Redesignation Forums and Surveys

Every five years The Moore Center is required to reapply to be designated as the Region VII Area Agency. As part of this process, the Bureau of Developmental Services (BDS) requests feedback from the families and guardians of those individuals whom we serve.

The feedback is first collected through a five page survey and then BDS staff also plan to hear from you via a live Zoom forum. Click below for more information. 

20th Annual Garden Party Raises a Record $227,175 to Support Families

Thank you to all who joined us at our 20th annual Garden Party on Thursday, September 16th on the grounds of Brady Sullivan Tower.

This annual event is one of our major fundraisers and also honors a person or persons who have made a positive impact on the greater Manchester community.

This year’s honoree was Board member and Past Chair Daniel F. Cronin, Founder and President of CGI Business Solutions, who also received a proclamation from Manchester Mayor Joyce Craig and Senate President Chuck Morse.

Important Client Rights Reporting Information

As you know, understanding and supporting every client’s rights is everyone’s responsibility, and one that we take very seriously. It has come to our attention that there are currently issues with the BDS complaint call line, making it difficult to get through.

If you’re finding that you cannot get through, please send the complaint information directly to Erica Ross-Skianes, either by email or phone (603-271-5129).

Family-Centered Early Supports & Services

Now available through Telehealth, using either phone or video conferencing.

Concerned about how your child is talking, moving, or behaving? Wondering if your child is meeting their developmental milestones? We Can Help! 

Early intervention is CRITICAL for these children, and beginning early enhances the chances for a more positive result. If you feel that your infant or toddler (aged birth through two) may have developmental issues, you can request a free evaluation.

Conflict-Free Case Management

If you have a family member who receives services through the Developmental Service System of Area Agencies you may have you heard about the Corrective Action Plan (CAP) that NH is under, related to the Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Waivers through the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS).

The three 1915 (c) waivers affected by this CAP are Developmental Services, Acquired Brain Disorder, and Children’s In-Home Services.

The compliance issues addressed in the CAP focus on conflict of interest between case management and direct service delivery; and compliance with Medicaid billing rules, which allow providers to bill directly to the State.
