We advocate for the full inclusion of people with disabilities by promoting comprehensive, quality community-based services as an alternative to institutionalization.
People with disabilities and families of children with disabilities must have meaningful information and real choices regarding where and with whom to live, choices in their daily lives and real opportunities to be independent and to actively participate in their communities.
Our agency helps individuals when their rights to live in the community have been violated. We protect and advance policies and encourage resources that focus on planning, development and provision of community-based services which are responsive to the individual needs of adults and children with disabilities and their families, and that support family life for children with disabilities.
