SUPPORTED LIFE is a life that is rich in qualities a person most
desires, and one which shows how connected we all are to each other.
from a person's own choices, desires and dreams;
not controlled by what kind of services are currently available;
beyond just meeting a person's basic needs, to reaching a rich quality
all areas of a person's life;
always changing throughout a person's life;
the kind of life we all want and is not unique to people who happen
to have disabilities.
