What Home means to me

Nine people with disability explain what 'home' means to them. This video was made by Imagine More as a contribution to the extensive collection of resources in the My Home, My Way project.

About the My Home, My Way project

It is often believed that the only living option for people with developmental disabilities (other than their family home) is to live in a group home. Over many decades, people with disabilities and families have challenged this belief. They have shown that people, even with complex needs, can live in their own home.

The My Home, My Way website contains many resources, often written or produced by people with a disability and their supporters. These resources will assist in holding a vision for each person, no matter what their needs, to live in their own home with a range of personally tailored supports.
