Jefferson County Hub

The Jefferson County Hub, in House Springs, MO, opened in 2012 in order to bring services closer for individuals and families living in Jefferson County — just south of St. Louis. The Hub Director is Kristina Larsson who is presently pursuing her certification as a Board Certified Behavior Analyst.
Many individuals have found a wide diversity of services to meet their needs in Jefferson County.  Assessments toward an autism diagnosis are very important in accessing other needed services.  In Jefferson County, in-home parent support and consultation services are provided.  Behavior analytic services are widely used as well as behavioral personal assistance. 
Noteworthy, has been the addition of residential services in Jefferson County. Thirteen (13) individuals received the supports they need to live in their own homes. Currently, there are five (homes) in operation and more are planned in the future.
The expansion of residential services has enabled many individuals to remain close to family and friends in this county.
Because of the huge demand for Judevine services in Jefferson County plans are underway to move to more permanent quarters inorder to expand services including day habilitation and job preparation services.
At the current Hub location individuals also participate in center-based services, community integration services, and work skills and volunteer experience.  Supported employment is also available. 
Interestingly, the community support for the Jefferson County Hub was recently demonstrated by a joint fundraiser during Autism Awareness Week last year during a joint effort of Judevine and a local Burger King Restaurant in Peveley, MO.
