Together for Choice is a 501(c)(3) organization (Tax ID No: 82-2128631) with a mission to unite to protect and advance the rights of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) to live, work and thrive in a community or setting of their choice.
Individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (‘I/DD’) – like every other member of society – deserve a full array of options in their residential, vocational and recreational choices. Their diversity and individual needs must be respected, honored and celebrated with the offering of a broad array of quality residential, vocational and recreational choices – expanded choices that will enrich each of their lives.
We are joining together – representatives of organizations that serve individuals with I/DD, family members and loved ones – in recognition of the work that needs to be done to advance these individuals’ rights and expand their choices.
We are spurred by the increasingly complex array of federal Medicaid and state agency rules that govern these critically important and personal housing and employment choices.
We encourage your organization to join and please forward to you families as well so they can consider joining at no cost. To join, please click here: https://www.togetherforchoice.org/about-us
