With a grant from the State Council on Developmental Disabilities, the California Supported Living Network (CSLN) is starting the PAVE Project. The PAVE Project is a Person Centered, Advocacy, Vision and Education Project. The project's goal is to ensure quality-based outcomes for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.


The PAVE Project will create a unique Advisory Group that will be tasked with creating a blueprint to pave the way for a brighter future. The Advisory Group will develop service-level outcomes for personal and employment support services, which will be used to develop outcome-based training for direct service providers. The training will form the basis for improved service quality. That improved service quality will be measured by collecting data through surveys of Californians who use these services.

They are looking for people receiving services, self-advocates, family members and staff to join the PAVE Project Advisory Group. It will consist of 20-25 members and will meet once a month in Sacramento from 10:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. Lunch will be provided. Travel and lodging stipends available for people receiving services, self-advocates, staff, and family advocates.
