The Culture of Care

PLAN of Southwest Ohio is a private, non-profit organization whose mission is to offer a family peace of mind and quality of life for a loved one with a disability through planning and lifelong assistance.

PLAN serves families who have loved ones with severe mental illnesses, developmental disabilities, traumatic brain injuries, and other long term, serious, and chronic disabling conditions.

Plan of Southwest Ohio

Assists With:


We help families and loved ones with disabilities create a blueprint for future care. We assist with estate planning to protect eligibility for public benefits (special needs trust planning), benefits analysis, life planning, and future planning.

We refer PLAN participants to the local attorneys and financial planners we know who are knowledgeable about special needs and discretionary trusts for people with disabilities.

Family Surrogacy

When your family joins PLAN, you join OUR family.  Our staff assist with tasks as varied as securing and maintaining benefits, to meeting for coffee to just touch base.  We strive to establish solid rapport with PLAN participants, assisting with current difficulties in positive ways in order to build a trusting relationship, which ensures that carefully planned assistance is delivered over time.

Recreation & Fun

People with disabilities are often isolated and bored.  We host numerous community-based recreational outings each month and facilitate the fun!  We can help individuals pursue independent recreational opportunities in the community as well.

Brain Therapy

Our Cognitive Enhancement Therapy (CET)  program (CET Cleveland) is an evidence based practice designed to improve the neuro and social cognitive development of people diagnosed with schizophrenic illnesses.
