Meeting location: CISA, Lincoln, IL
Example: Early intervention, DRS, UIC/MFP uses websites that allow for information to be uploaded on them. Can something like that be used to upload basic information about a person seeking services to allow a provider to "shop" and see if they are able to meet their life non-negotiables? ? How do providers become encouraged to look at individuals seeking services as more of a capacity management situation rather than an open bed situation? Right now, if there is an open bed at an agency that needs filled, then individuals are sought to fill it rather than developing a residential arrangement tailored to that individual and what they want out of life.
Example: A person knows how to use public transportation, and wants to do so to visit with friends/family, yet, they move into a site that doesn't have public transportation accessible.
