Going Home Coalition

Category: Advocacy

  • Investment Partner: The Arc of Illinois
  • Investment Location: Statewide

​​ICDD has worked with the Going Home Coalition for several years to build capacity in home and community-based services by advocating for rebalancing of institutional funding and the engagement of people with disabilities and families waiting for and receiving community-based services.  The Arc of Illinois will reinvigorate the Going Home Coalition to increase community capacity and decrease investment in institutions.  People with disabilities, families, Policymakers, and allies will be engaged in educational opportunities, rallies, and advocacy demonstrations to make Illinois an Inclusion First state. The Going Home Coalition's vision for Illinois is to be truly person-centered with responsive programs and systems that ensure people with disabilities have lives that are full and lived in the broader community.
