Cape Fear Vocational Services attends NC APSE Conference

Cape Fear Vocational Services staff members had the opportunity to attend the North Carolina APSE Conference at the end of March. The theme this year was “New Beginnings-New Possibilities”. The staff were able to learn, share ideas and resources. Most importantly updates were provided on legislation and how it impacts CFVS along with the people we support. This inspiring event helped us make connections with other providers that will be beneficial for the long term!
(APSE – Association of People Supporting EmploymentFirst) is the largest membership organization dedicated to the growth and expansion of supported and customized employment for persons with disabilities.

The Landfall Foundation was formed as a means for Landfall residents to thoughtfully and confidently extend support to greater Wilmington area non-profit organizations. Grants are awarded after our Grants Committee evaluates applications for projects and programs in the areas of the arts, education, health and welfare. This valuable contribution to smaller organizations, that are often underfunded, makes a major impact on the vital needs of our community. For more infomation visit:

CFGH is awarded Trillium’s Valued Providers Seal

Cape Fear Group Homes, Inc. is honored to receive Trillium’s Valued Providers Seals. Trillium Health Resources is a leading specialty care manager (LME/MCO) for individuals with substance use, mental illness and intellectual/developmental disabilities in eastern North Carolina. To receive the Green, Blue, Orange, Yellow and Gold seals, providers must first demonstrate quality services and meet rigorous operational criteria. This includes a comprehensive application process encompassing credentialing, confirmation with Division of Health Benefits (DHB) on any existing provider issues, and onsite visits. Trillium also initiates audits and monitoring activities on a scheduled and ad hoc basis. Each provider contract may include specific expectations regarding wait time for appointments, staff training, and member communications to ensure we are in compliance with the goals of NC Medicaid.

While these are the basic requirements, Trillium recognizes many of our providers’ efforts extend far beyond these checked boxes. Trillium’s Valued Providers Seal Program helps formally commend these providers for doing all they can to help strengthen our communities and provide quality care to our members.
