Panel Discussion: The Changing Landscape of DDS Residential Support Options

  • Toquet Hall 58 Post Road East Westport, CT, 06880 United States (map)

Increasing waiting lists, ongoing budget challenges and a lack of a pathway to residential opportunities have many Connecticut families concerned about the future for their loved ones with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD).

Come join us for a panel discussion with DDS staff and community providers who are assisting people with I/DD and families in using alternatives to traditional DDS supports such as Community Companion Homes, Shared Living and Assistive Technology to build lives in the community.

***This discussion is free and open to everyone, but you must RSVP below.***

Panel:
Michael DeGrosse, Assistant Program Manager, CT Department of Developmental Services (DDS)
Pam Fields, CEO, Midstate Arc
Heather Latorra, President & CEO, Marrakech, Inc.
Joanne Malise, Director, Living Innovations
