Question
Do you feel your answer in this URL is still the best one (written in 2006):  http://en.allexperts.com/q/Living-Disabilities-2086/Group-living-MR-adults.htm ?

Answer
Hi Barb,

It was the best answer I had at the time. I don't know that much has changed since then. We still are not fully funded for our DD/ABD waitlist in NH, although prospects look promising with our new governor's budget proposal. Area QAgencies now offer an option called Participant Directed Services which allows folks to directly manage how their money is spent towards services.

I would only add that families/individuals who are served in NH are encouraged to have choice, and so I would offer this link to the Private Provider Network web site: http://www.nhprovidernetwork.com/

There is a map that indicates where providers are located. Anyone can click on an area and contact the local providers/vendors directly to see what services they offer.

Thanks for the question. Hope this helps.
