We work in partnership with adults who are aging with disabilities to promote their well-being, community participation, self-determination and leadership.

Advocates for Livable Communities Underway

For two years now, the Indiana Governor’s Council for People with Disabilities has supported a workshop series to encourage advocacy for Livable Communities concepts and practices in two Indiana communities. Advocates for Livable Communities is a 5-day training process for older adults and persons with disabilities. The aim is to create a cadre of highly knowledgeable and skilled advocates who can work for changes that will benefit all ages and abilities in their home communities. This year's training communities are Richmond and Bedford, with both making great strides in recruiting participants for fall training dates. Our Center is partnered with the Center for Aging and Community at the University of Indianapolis on this project.
