The following post is the first of many for the Bridges US 1102 Task Force Series.

Introduction to the 1102 Task Force

Did you know that Jonathan Burlison, CEO of Bridges US and Bridges of Indiana, serves on the Task Force for Assessment of Services and Supports for People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities? The Task Force was established in 2017 and serves to, “prepare a comprehensive plan for implementation of community-based services provided to people with intellectual and other disabilities.”

Since November 2017, members have been working on reviewing essential and innovative topics such as employment and community living expansion. Over the past several months, Jon presented white papers and recommendations on Shared Living, Tying Funding to Individuals, Support for Driverless Automobile Technology Legislation, and Elimination of Subminimum Wage. Each week, Bridges is excited to share the Taskforce’s progress and initiatives for the future of services.
