The Columbus Organization now offers support coordination services through its new subsidiary, Support Associates.  Founded in 2000, Support Associates is a Florida Medicaid Waiver provider specifically for the Agency for Persons with Disabilities ibudget Waiver.   Support Associates has been committed to supporting the citizens of Florida with intellectual and developmental disabilities and will continue to offer the highest quality care as part of the Columbus family.


  • Support coordination services
  • Life skills training
  • Personal adjustment counseling under the Brain and Spinal Cord Injury Waiver and Adult Cystic Fibrosis Waiver
  • Training services to support coordinators throughout Florida

Through our person-centered approach, the individuals and families we support have more choice, personal power, and control of their lives. We believe individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities should be valued and given the same opportunities to reach their potential as those without disabilities.  With a dedication to quality, experience, and compassion, we believe everyone deserves the opportunity to have a meaningful life.
