Family Voices Indiana shares the following information from the Indiana Council on Independent Living.....
To all interested parties and individuals:
The Indiana Council on Independent Living is now developing the goals to be included in the 2013-2015 State Plan for Independent Living. These goals are a critical part of the state plan, providing the direction for independent living in Indiana for the next three years.
A workgroup of Council members and staff from three Centers for Independent Living have drafted new goals for review and comment. The workgroup used the current State Plan, feedback from the September 2011 planning retreat, and ideas they generated in the process.
We are seeking input on these draft goals from all interested individuals and groups. Our intent is to define goals that will address a wide range of challenges to independent living for individuals with disabilities and their families. We hope to develop clear, attainable goals for the State Plan that will guide the activities of ICOIL, independent living centers and the State of Indiana into the future. These draft goals provide a starting point for this discussion.
