The Going Home Campaign – The Place for Information on Rebalancing for Families
We are excited to announce the launch of The Arc’s “Going Home – A Full Life in the Community” website.
This interactive website was designed with you in mind. www.goinghomeillinois.org is the place where you will find facts and the latest news about the Governor’s plan to rebalance the disability system and transition people into the community.
You will have the opportunity to get your questions answered and participate in a forum with serious, thoughtful discussions about the transition process. Individuals and families can express concerns and share useful strategies and ideas about transitioning into the community.
You will also find a video that tells the story of individuals and families who are thriving after moving from an institution to community life. You will be able to keep track of our activities, follow people with disabilities on their journey, view our picture gallery, read about success stories, and so much more!
You are not alone on this journey. Our website was built as a resource for you – a place where you can go to share your story and to get your questions answered factually and timely.
We know that making the transition into the community can be intimidating. We also know that it can be done successfully, which is why our Family Transition Advocates will be there every step of the way. Please visit www.goinghomeillinois.org to experience our collective journey to living life with independence, equality, and opportunity.
