Two more things!

Consumers and Families: Share with the Arc of Illinois about your experience with adult services over the past year.  Fill out this three question survey now!

Thanks to the almost 80 people who have shared what is working and what is missing around adult services in the community.  We want to hear from more self-advocates and family members about needs.  We are using this for our advocacy as well as to share with policy makers and the court monitor.  Please share your experience!

State of the States:  Illinois Snapshot
Thanks to Amie Lulinski, former Arc board member and other researchers at the State of the States for the following snapshot of where Illinois sits in its efforts to rebalance.  It is what we already know – Illinois significantly behind most other states in focusing on investing in community and offering alternative smaller and consumer directed options for services and supports.  Check it out here.  Share it with your legislators.  Post it on your facebook page!
