Panel discussion: "Realizing the Vision of Deinstitutionalization: What Needs to be Done"

Over the past four decades, there has been a tremendous change in how people with disabilities are cared for in Massachusetts and throughout the country, as individuals have moved from poorly funded, overcrowded institutions to living full and satisfying lives in the community.

Despite this progress, however, more work still needs to be done to truly realize the vision of deinstitutionalization. Our panel of experts will talk about the changes they would like to see to help bring this vision to fruition.
  • Susan Senator, Author, Making Peace with Autism and Autism Adulthood: Strategies and Insights for a Fulfilling Life
Moderator: Jeff Keilson, Senior Vice President for Strategic Planning at Advocates

And honoring our community partners:
  • Lisa DiBonaventura, M.A., COMS, Statewide Director for Vision and Vision Loss Services, DDS
  • Wesley Finnemore, owner, Matilda's Sandwich Shoppe
  • Linda Glenn, former Assistant Commissioner for Mental Health and Mental Retardation Services

Experience. Innovation. MAB Community Services has been creating opportunities for people with disabilities since 1903. Our experience allows us to forge strong community partnerships to meet the pressing need for high quality services and transform lives.
