Top of mind: Access to services, equity, housing
In fall of 2023, we surveyed people from across state to ask them what they needed in terms of support and advocacy.
In an open-ended question (“What are you concerned about?”), people called out inability to access services. Disability equity, housing, and health care were also mentioned often.
People where then asked how worried they were about some specific issues. Housing and support to live in and be part of the community rose to the top, as did mental health services or other behavior support. But results varied a bit when groups were broken out.
Respondents left hundreds of comments that collectively capture a system that is difficult to access or rely on, especially for people with complex health and behavior.
The survey report includes 4 sections:
- About me/demographic information
- How I feel about things
- Access to support
- Degree of support for legislative issues
