The Center seeks to improve the quality of supports and services for persons with disabilities through consumer direction and foster the development of inclusive communities that recognize and value the roles of older adults and persons with disabilies.
Current projects include the Cash & Counseling project, which gives financial control and choices to Medicaid consumers who need personal assistance services and support to lead more independent lives. Consumers manage and direct a flexible monthly allowance while receiving access to financial management and counseling (supports brokerage) services.
