Families for Families

Families for Families

 The needs of people with intellectual and/or /developmental disabilities (I/DD) and the ability of state and federal programs to meet those needs are in stark contrast.  Individuals with I/DD have the right to grow and thrive in the communities of their choosing, but the infrastructure, resources and vision necessary to promote those rights are too often lacking.   Families are uniquely positioned to effectively drive home the message that this is unacceptable and personally impact the decisions of policy makers.   The Arc Connecticut has always believed that with supports that reflect goals and personal aspirations, individuals with I/DD can grow and thrive in the community of their choosing.

The Arc Connecticut’s Families for Families has mobilized thousands of families and individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) around preventing harmful changes, as well as promoting helpful changes, to the DDS private system of support.
