When & Where
Illinois Association of Microboards and Cooperatives
Illinois Association of Microboards and Cooperatives is a project of the Illinois Division of Developmental Disabilities. It is aimed at helping people with disabilities live the lives they want to live, with the support of family, friends, community and public resources.
The project offers self-advocates, families and friends the opportunity to create Microboards and Human Service Cooperatives, consumer-governed structures that bring resources, authority and responsibility directly into the hands of the people whose lives are most affected by the way support services are organized.
