Community Supports & Transition Committee

The Community Supports & Transition Committee addresses activities in the State Plan to address the goal: To increase the number of adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities to love where they live by promoting and enhancing community-based supports and services.

Purpose

  1. Enhancing residential placements and options within communities where individuals with DD were raised and avoiding the placement of individuals with developmental disabilities into institutions.

  2. Creating surveys to find out what residential options are working best for adults with developmental disabilities and what is needed, statewide.

  3. Continuing to work with County transportation coordinators statewide to assure bus routes and other modes of transportation are meeting the needs of individuals with developmental disabilities so they can utilize generic services to access their community.

  4. Promoting collaboration with agencies to provide civic engagement training for individuals with developmental disabilities and their supporters.
