HHS is meeting with Texans in Laredo to gain insight on how to improve services for people with disabilities.
Hosted by Senator Zaffirini.
About this Event
The Health and Human Services Commission is developing an action plan to improve the system and delivery of services for Texans with physical, intellectual and/or developmental disabilities. Working closely with internal and external partners around the state, HHS will identify opportunities to improve agency coordination to make it easier for individuals, families and providers to navigate the HHS system for disability services. This plan will drive initiatives for the next several years to improve services for people with disabilities with the supports necessary to thrive in the setting of their choice.
As the first step in developing this plan, HHS staff will be meeting with Texans around the state to gain insight from client and provider experiences and challenges navigating HHS, as well as opportunities to improve.
HHS staff want to know:
•What is working well.
•What is not working.
•Your ideas to improve how we deliver services.
