Olmstead Plan Survey

Posted in Disability, Outreach, and Public Awareness

FYI: The WV Olmstead Council wants all people with disabilities to be able to live, work and socialize in their communities as other people do. The Council’s work is based on a U.S. Supreme Court decision that upholds the right of people with disabilities to live in the most integrated setting.

As we update our plan, we need your input! How well is the current service system working for people with disabilities? How can we make it better? Please take a few minutes to complete this online survey by December 1st:
