Dylan's Story

“Pioneer” of Supported Living, Level 3 now at risk for losing independence.

Dylan is living his best life. At 29, he has his own place. He is happier and doing better than at any other time in his adult life. He’s an active part of his community. He swims, grocery shops, goes to the library and volunteers. He has his own business: shreddingtogo.com. Dylan also has autism, and needs round-the-clock help. But he gets to choose how to spend his time with the supports he receives under an Innovations Waiver service called Supported Living. Now, Dylan might lose it all. His current provider is dropping him and there are no other providers willing to take him on as a client. They say that Dylan’s care is too expensive. Dylan’s family worries that he will have to go back to a group home or an institution. Last time he was institutionalized, he was seriously injured and spent ten days in the hospital, unconscious.
