WHY IS THIS NEEDED?

People with IDD living in rural areas experience additional barriers in access to supports, services, advocacy, and community-based opportunities.  

  

HOW WILL THIS PROJECT HELP?

This project will establish regular meetings for self-advocates in rural counties in Region 2 to increase their skills in areas of their choosing.  This project will also create direct channels for these groups to share the barriers they face living in rural communities.
