Nationally, there are over 820,000 individuals with disabilities and older
adults on waiting lists for Medicaid Home and Community Based Services.
Many individuals and families have waited for decades. Some are forced into
nursing homes and institutions. This documentary tells the story of three
individuals in one state who are waiting and their struggle to live in the
community with dignity and respect. Join The Community Living Policy Center
at Brandeis University for a virtual screening of the 30-minute documentary
and a panel discussion with Naomi, Ben, and Nick featured in the film.
Nicole Jorwic of The Arc National will provide a timely update about the
national efforts to expand Home and Community-Based Services and the
important opportunity facing our policy leaders to act now.
ASL and CART will be provided. Please email email@example.com for
additional accommodation requests.
