Four U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Stakeholder Dialogues and Listening Sessions on implementing the Community Living Initiative were held across the nation last year, and a summary report is now available. The Community Living Initiative expands opportunities for people with disabilities and older adults to live in their communities and achieve their goals. Many of the issues and challenges identified during the four listening sessions will guide HHS in developing and refining strategies to support and promote community living.
The listening sessions gave voice to stakeholders at the state and community levels. These dialogues are valuable to HHS on many levels as the agency explores ways to strengthen partnerships to foster community living.
