Cape Fear GH Participates in NCDHHS “Money Follows the Person” Webinar

Cape Fear Group Homes is dedicated to providing ongoing options and opportunities to the people we serve in our group homes. We take pride in the fact we are always seeking to expand our knowledge base, skills, and continuing education. On July 28th, we participated in a Webinar presented by the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) about the Money Follows the Person (MFP) program.

The “No Frills MFP Transitional Coordination Training” was hosted by Steve Stromm, MFP Project Director and Tracy Pakornsawat, MFP Development Coordinator. MFP is a state project that helps NC Medicaid-eligible North Carolinians living in inpatient facilities to move into their own homes and communities with supports. Cape Fear Group Homes has a 4-bed Waiver Home for individuals who are a part of the MFP project or already have an Innovations Waiver Slot. For an information on MFP please visit
