How does Living Well With A Disability work?

Living Well Specialist meeting with a person.

After calling the hotline, you will be connected to a Living Well Specialist. The two of you will determine a time to meet, so you can complete the Living Well With A Disability survey. The survey will help you and the Living Well Specialist determine the types of services, programs or support you need to achieve your goals and dreams. Once the survey is completed, the two of you will develop a plan for you to follow to meet your needs.
