A SDSC is a legally established small corporation with a board of directors that can accept government support funding and arrange for the provision of needed services to one person with disabilities. Its purpose is to enable that person to live a more independent and self-directed life fully integrated into the person’s community. The SDSC is a means for family and friends of the person to be active partners with the person in organizing the kind of life that the person wants and is capable of having. It provides a legal, businesslike mechanism for the person with disabilities, family members and allies in the community to work together to use government and private funds to provide housing, work, social and all other community opportunities available to other people in the person’s community.
