Government Partnerships

High-Quality, Cost Efficiencies

Benchmark Human Services works closely with federal, state, and county governments to develop effective and efficient ways to serve individuals with intellectual disabilities and those with severe and persistent mental illness. As a partner of government, we realize the privilege and responsibility of using public funds and always strive for high-quality, cost-effective services. 

The list below shows recent programs Benchmark has developed and/or implemented in partnership with state and federal governments.

Crisis Management Systems

Benchmark has developed and implemented three major statewide crisis response programs that serve individuals with intellectual disabilities or severe and persistent mental illness that live in the community and are experiencing a behavioral health crisis.


System Point of Entry (SPOE)

Benchmark manages several System Point of Entry (SPOE) regions. As SPOE regional manager, Benchmark helps parents whose children are age birth to three years and have a developmental disability or delay, to navigate through the state’s early intervention program, coordinates scheduling and training for service providers, and serves as a liaison for the state to providers and parents.


AbilityOne Contracts

Anthony Wayne Rehabilitation Center for Blind and Handicapped, Inc. (AWRC), the not-for-profit arm of the Benchmark family, manages several federal government projects, awarded through the AbilityOne program. The AbilityOne program, through SourceAmerica, awards federal projects to not-for-profit agencies that involve hiring people with disabilities for federal programs. AWRC contracts include managing mailroom operations for Kennedy Space Center, Florida; Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri; Wright Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio; and several contracts with federal departments. Additionally, AWRC provides comprehensive printing and mailing services for over 300 local, state, and federal customers.
