Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) help people with developmental disabilities to live in and be active and included members of their neighborhoods and communities. The HCBS Settings Final Rule requires that people with developmental disabilities have full access to community life and receive services in the most integrated setting possible. The Boggs Center’s Community Life Video Series highlights why community life and aspects of the Rule that support it are important to people with disabilities.

Videos currently available focus on Community Integration, including opportunities to seek employment, work in integrated settings, control their own resources, and access their communities to the same degree as people who do not receive HCBS; Privacy, Lockable Doors, and Freedom to Decorate; and Rights & Autonomy, including the ability to control their own schedules and activities, and have access to food at any time.
