A 30-minute video on people with disabilities in New York who are running their own services. It was made in 2009 but there are many important lessons. You meet people who used to live in institutions who are moved to living in their own homes, with one or two housemates. For too many years money for services has gone to agencies. The 8 people in the video control the money for their services and choose the services they want and need.
