North Carolina Families Struggling To Find Housing For Adult Children With Disabilities.

January 14, 2020

Disability Scoop (1/14, Brown) reports many families in North Carolina are struggling with locating and affording housing for adult children with disabilities requiring varying levels of care. The state cut funding for its managed care organizations after “a 2018 state audit found the companies had amassed a total of $439 million from 2014-2017,” but the organizations “say they were being fiscally responsible and that the cuts have made it harder to provide all of the services some of their clients need.” Nevertheless, the MCOs “say they are working to fund the services people...need to live as independently as possible.”
