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.
