People deserve to live their lives as active members of their communities
People with disabilities have a right to be in the community, to access and interact with the world around them. Both the Americans with Disabilities Act (1990) and Olmstead v. LC (1999) require people receive services in the most integrated settings possible – people who are receiving human services and supports must have the same opportunities to access the community as other citizens.
We recognize the difference between community access and community inclusion, with the latter being the ultimate goal. While the characteristics of community may vary depending on personal preferences, as with all people, people who receive supports are integral community members and should be supported to fulfill multiple social roles in the community.
