Kelly A. Simpson, Community Living Services Program Coordinator, Huntington Office

As Community Living Services Program Coordinator at our Huntington Office, I am responsible for consumer requests for the Community Living Services Program (CLSP) in Brooke, Cabell, Fayette, Hancock,Lincoln, Logan, Marshall, Mason, McDowell, Mercer, Mingo, Monroe, Ohio, Raleigh, Summers, Tyler, Wayne, Wetzel, and Wyoming counties. I also oversee CLSP requests and services in our Beckley center. The services include bathroom modifications such as a roll in shower, shower transfer bench or raised toilet seat, a ramp, portable ramp, wheelchair lift or carrier for their vehicle, vehicle modifications, hearing aids, high volume telephones, lift chairs, wheelchairs, and other assistive technology equipment to help the person to remain independent and be able to stay in their own home in their community. We also offer assistance in getting help with accessible housing and personal assistance services.

I am responsible for conducting public awareness activities including the Kids ADA awareness presentations in local elementary and middle schools. We also visit with high schools, other agencies, and senior centers and high rises, providing disability awareness in the community and information about the CLSP program in your area.

I have worked at Mountain State for more than 15 years and enjoy helping to improve the lives of people with disabilities. I am married to my husband, Everette. I am the mother of three independent adult children; two of my children are blind and visually impaired with an eye condition known as Leber's Congenital Amaurosis. I am step mother to four adult children and grandmother of three.

My experiences with my children have given me the opportunity to offer personal insight into the needs and abilities of people with are blind and visually impaired. I myself have hidden disabilities, chronic asthma and arthritis and I have lost a total of 155 pounds this past year and celebrated my one year anniversary from gastric bypass surgery.

I am a graduate of the WV Career College and a member and past chair of the Fair Shake Network (FSN). My duties at the center include completing all reports for the CLSP program and CIL Suite reporting and updates as well as monitoring and supporting legislation that affects people with disabilities. I am a 2003 graduate of the Partners in Policy Making Program.

If you are interested in receiving services from the Community Living Services Program, or in scheduling a Kids ADA presentation or disability awareness presentation for your school or organization, please give me a call.

You can reach me in the Huntington office at 304-525-3324 from 8:15 am to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, or send me an email
