Why This Is Important

We are working together to create systems in which all people with disabilities receive the support they need to create their own lives, supported by those who know and care about them, connected with and contributing to others in our communities. For individuals who receive public funding, the capacity to direct that funding towards purchasing supports and services that they identify and are able to obtain is one of the cornerstones of a person-centered system, and a necessary component of self-determination. Products in this store will tend to focus more on the operational and funding related aspects of self-determination and person-centered planning.
