Close Institutions

Assure a home in the community

  • Ensure people with intellectual disabilities are not inappropriately living in other institutional settings like nursing homes etc.
  • Ensure that all supportive living options are based on choice, self-determination, and individualized funding.
  • Ensure people with intellectual disabilities have equal access to the range of adequate and affordable housing generally available in their community.
