Introducing What Does It Mean To Live In My Own Place?

Introducing _What Does It Mean To Live In My Own Place?_

Choosing where to live, who to live with, and how to live one’s life are basic rights. But for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) it can be particularly difficult to access those rights. In the past, living with family or in group homes may have been the only option. Today, there are many different funding and supports available to help them live on their own, but many people don't know about them. 

Our latest edition of Making Policy Public, What Does It Mean To Live In My Own Place?, is a foldout poster helps people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (I/DD) understand their rights and options, and address their questions on living independently. This project was created in partnership with AHRC NYC and design studio Second Marriage. The guide also serves as a planning workbook to be filled out by people with I/DD and their supporters when they are preparing to live independently, complete with a list of resources on funding and where to get help.
