In 2019 we focused on engaging entire families, including siblings, caregivers, and friends. We completed the third year of the Ohio DD Council’s Supporting Aging Caregivers Grant. This included connecting with 57 family members at three Future Is Now sessions, as well as developing resources to ensure the long-term sustainability of Future Is Now. We also worked with families to complete 75% of waiting list assessments by the end of 2019 and will finish all waiting list assessments by early 2020. Finally, we supported an effort by Home Think Tank to develop a Housing Options Guide to help families as they weigh long-term housing decisions with family members who have a disability.
