The second dimension is assisting, insisting and supporting people with disabilities and their communities to use what they have. Often this will mean using what they have in combination with public funds, but it may also mean using only what is at hand within the community itself.

It means supporting employers to make jobs available to people with the most challenging needs, and yet again, demonstrate that sheltered and congregated settings are not needed. It means supporting families to using some of their wealth to invest in home ownership for their adult children with disabilities.
