Bill and Elizabeth recently attended the press conference announcing the launch of the Home First Illinois Initiative. Governor Pat Quinn was on hand to announce commitment of funds from the Illinois Jobs Now! capital program to provide support for the new initiative that plans to create new independent living opportunities for Illinoisans with disabilities. In addition, the Illinois Housing Development Authority provided financing to develop the program.
WJA is proud to be partnering with IFF in this new venture. Once complete, IFF, along with their partner Access Living, will collaborate to manage units and place individuals with physical disabilities currently living in institutions into the newly accessible community settings.
