A presentation by Michele Lawton, Supervisor of Adult Services Navigation at WIHD, will include information on current housing options, funding options for housing, prerequisites to have in place before funding streams are available, services through the Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD), Social Security, and Medicaid Benefits, and what you can do to help students and families prepare for navigating these systems. Government and private housing options will be discussed.
