Agency With Choice (AWC) is a way to support individuals and families to engage in self-determination. This program is designed to support people with disabilities to live the lives that they desire by allowing people to exercise authority over potential staff who support them.

AWC is known as a co-employment model meaning that the employer duties are split between the agency provider and the individual/family who serves as the managing employer.

AEI is an AWC provider who agrees to hire the individual staff workers YOU choose to provide services to you. The individual worker becomes an employee of AEI and we in turn help you train and manage the staff worker.
