For over 15 years, Twogether Consulting has been delivering the best training in the state of Texas for HCS, ICF, and other providers.  We provide the best assistance you can find with training, survey preparation, billing preparation, policy and procedure development, and provider marketing.

Julie Blacklock, our founder and owner, has been an owner of an HCS program and understands the cost of running a program and the limited financial return sometimes for the amount of service the facility is expected to provide. As a provider yourself, you can trust us to deliver the best services at the lowest price.
