Supported Independent Living Ombudsman Pilot Program

In collaboration with the Advocacy Center, the Council supported a pilot ombudsman program for people with developmental disabilities receiving Supported Independent Living (SIL) services in Jefferson, Orleans, St. Bernard, and Plaquemines Parishes. The pilot demonstrated effective methods for ensuring that people receiving SIL services have access to an ombudsman that can advocate for participants to receive quality services and address and enjoy all rights and protections indicated by law.
