Living with a brain injury can require a range of resources, strategies and supports. The range of possible supports can be tremendous. This page hopes to offer links to articles and information about the supports and resources that are available to people with brain injury and their families to assist them.

Accessing Home and Community-Based Services:  A Guide for Self Advocates

Accessing Home and Community-Based Services: A Guide for Self Advocates is a tool designed to help people with disabilities, our families, and friends find and use resources that are available to us. This may include family and friends, community-based services, state funded waivers and programs, and other resources to help empower people with disabilities to live as independently as possible and make our own choices about what we need.  

This tool can help those using it become more self-sufficient and independent. It can also help spread awareness about resources that you may not have known about or been familiar with. It is a tool to inform about various resources and how to access them. It is also a reference about resources that, although you may not need or want them now, you can use in the future.   Click here to download.
