Description

This session highlights longitudinal research conducted by the University of Minnesota's Residential Information Systems project examining changes in living situations since 1977. Key research findings will explore challenges associated with shifting our attention from closing large institutions to community living options. Temple University researchers will share the lived experiences of former State Center residents as they transition into the community in Pennsylvania, highlighting the processes of closing a state-run institution.
