Ensuring A Home for Those with Disabilities

Eighteen states now meet the 80 percent "Home-like Setting" standard for those with intellectual and developmental disabilities (ID/DD)--the national average is 77 percent--according to United Cerebral Palsy’s 2014 Case for Inclusion. This means that at least 80 percent of all individuals with ID/DD in those states are served in settings such as their own home, family foster care or small group settings like shared apartments with fewer than three residents.
