Share Your Story: What Supports Do You Need to Live in Your Community?
Many people with disabilities rely on Medicaid-funded home and community-based services (HCBS) to live independently in their communities. HCBS supports people with disabilities by paying for things like employment supports, getting around, dressing, bathing or taking medication, and more. Help advocate for HCBS by sharing YOUR story about the supports you receive to be as independent as possible or the supports you don’t get but need to thrive.
