  • Obtain adequate, affordable, and accessible housing based on a continuum of need;
  • Utilize a legal system that meets the needs of all persons through properly trained staff and by giving consideration to the needs of aging parents of people who are disabled and including a program for physically and developmentally disabled offenders and their victims and;
  • Opportunities to utilize their right to self-determination, when possible.
