HELP BUILD COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS

Become a Community Connector!

In 2018, only 7% of Kentuckians with disabilities on Medicaid waivers participated as members of a community group. This shows us that while people with disabilities may have the opportunity to run errands or eat at out at restaurants, they often do not have real opportunities to authentically engage with their non-disabled peers in community settings. We are looking for social networkers who are interested in welcoming someone with a disability into their community circles, from book clubs to churches, from theater troupes to volunteer groups. We can help match you with someone we support based on shared interests! 

SUPPORT SOMEONE TO HAVE A HOME OF THEIR OWN

Become a landlord!

The housing market in Louisville is currently experiencing a shortage crisis. This crisis adversely affects people with disabilities to a greater degree than their peers. Only 5% of people on Medicaid waivers are named on the lease or deed where they live. We are looking for social entrepreneurs who want to make accessible, affordable housing available in Louisville’s neighborhoods by becoming a Section 8 landlord. 

ADVOCATE FOR SOMEONE'S RIGHTS!

Become a Legal Guardian!

In Kentucky, 1 in 4 people with disabilities on Medicaid waivers have a state-issued guardian. That’s over 2.5 times the national average! State guardians operate under highly restrictive policies due to these high caseloads. The system understands the negative impact of state guardianship and legally prioritizes private guardianship. We are looking for responsible citizens to develop a relationship with, show an interest in, and defend the rights and autonomy of a person we support.
