ODR's A Path to Community Living Handbook and the accompanying A Path to Community Living Resource Guide are a set of forms and resources compiled to assist people who have moved or our planning to move out of institutions into the community of their choice. The Handbook and Guide are designed to help you identify the services and supports you may need to live successfully in the community.

It is designed to be used in conjunction with the “Path to Community Living” Handbook; however, it also functions as a resource list. This document is updated continuously as information changes.
