WHAT WE NEED: We need to share REAL stories, YOUR stories. Tell us about how you — as a person who receives HCBS services, a family member, friend or provider — have seen an improved quality of life, more independence, and more opportunities because of Medicaid-funded HCBS services. Tell us about your life in the community and about what participating in your community means to you. We particularly encourage stories from people who have transitioned to the community from an institution and from people with significant support needs.
HOW TO WEIGH IN: Please send your story (500 words or less) and a photo (optional) to firstname.lastname@example.org Tell us what state you live in, whether you/your family member/friend/client receive HCBS for aging or disability services, what types of services you receive (help with work, getting dressed, shopping, etc.), how it has improved your/their quality of life, and anything else you want to share about the value of home and community-based services.
