History of Act 378
The Louisiana system of supports for people with disabilities has changed dramatically over the past 30 years. Prior to 1988, our state had few services for families who wanted their child with disabilities to grow up in their own home; likewise, there were families of adults with severe disabilities who wanted to live on their own, but there were basically no supports available for them to do so. Participants will learn the history of ACT 378 and the Community Family & Support System, what services are included, and where we are today. Join us!
