From The Arc of Illinois Ligas Family Advocate Program

These events are being held in conjunction with the local Independent Service Coordination (ISC) agency Service Inc., Kathy Ward, Acting DD Director or her Successor and a provider or two as a sampling of how waiver services work through the Home Based Services Program and through the CILA options. The event also serves as a “meet and greet” for families served in the area by the same ISC. In this instant, our focus is on individuals who were formerly served by Access of Northern Illinois, DayOnePact and Options Advocacy. Stay tuned we are working on events for down state!

Please contact Shirley Perez with questions!

We can help you understand how to build a living arrangement that works best for you and is in line with your hopes and goals. We can answer questions about how CILA or Home-based Waiver funding works, how the PUNS list is utilized, and how support services can be tailored to meet your needs. We can also provide positive examples of how individuals and families have utilized the funding to build the life that they want within their community.
