Project Objective
This project will strengthen the Community Living Network, a group of diverse organizations in the East Texas area. It will use the Asset Based Community Development model to increase the local capacity to provide community-based services that decrease the need for individuals with disabilities to be admitted to an institution. The Community Living Network will implement a strategic plan that includes person- and family-centered healthcare services, behavioral supports, and respite for people with developmental disabilities.

State Plan Goal 5
Demonstrate how to prevent unnecessary admissions to State Supported Living Centers (SSLC) by supporting community organizations in at least 1 HHS Region to increase their capacity to provide community-based services that support people with developmental disabilities to improve and maintain their health and to have access as needed to necessary healthcare, behavior supports, and/or respite, by 9/30/2016.
