    Person-Driven Services Project Part II with Kristin Ahrens

    in Culture

    Join us for a a follow-up discussion to our October 31, 2014 show on the Person-Driven Services Project with Kristin Ahrens, Policy Director for the Institute on Disabilities at Temple University. We'll talk about what “person-driven services and supports” are and learn about the research on this model of service delivery.


    Many people who want to direct their own services have expressed that they need support to direct their own services - help with things like recruiting and managing workers. Many people have also expressed the need for more flexibility in terms of what the funding for services and supports will cover. This is where the Supports Broker and Cash and Counseling can be important for real opportunities for self-direction. We will talk in detail about the role of the Supports Broker and what is happening to make Supports Brokers available. Cash and Counseling (known in PA as "Services My Way") will also be discussed as a possible way to offer more flexibility for what service funding can purchase.
