ACT 378 Community & Family Support Workshop
Tuesday, April 16, 2019

Join us to learn about the history of Act 378, the Community and Family Support System, and what supports are available for individuals with disabilities and their family!

Did you know that before 1988 Louisiana had very few services for families who had a child with disabilities and wanted to keep their child at home?  There was basically no supports to do so.  It was even worse for adults with developmental disabilities that wanted to stay in their own home. Our state has grown and changed dramatically concerning supports in the past 30 years.  Join us as we learn more about the Community & Family Support System and what supports are available in Louisiana!
