Division for Community Living Informational Presentation
For accessibility purposes, this presentation is available in several formats:

DRS administers programs which offer a broad range of services to individuals with disabilities to enhance opportunities for independent living.

These programs allow individuals with the most severe disabilities to live independently and in many cases obtain and maintain employment. Strong support for these community based services (versus nursing home or other institutional care) exists in state government and the disability community. The Division for Community Living staff are available to provide technical assistance and consultation in a wide variety of areas, including: assistive technology, accessing community based services and independent living, personal assistive services, Medicaid, brain injury and spinal cord injury services, case management for people who have long term needs, accessing available resources and loans for Assistive Technology (AT), and the ADA.

If you are seeking assistance in any one of these areas, but don't have a contact number, you may call the Division for Community Living Office at 1-800-552-5019 Voice, 1-800-464-9950 TTY, 804-662-7134 Voice/TTY and we will help you connect with the appropriate resource within the CBS Division.
