One of the most challenging issues facing parents and family members
of persons with developmental disabilities is planning for the future.
Ignorance and fear too often keep families in isolation and inaction.
Lack of information, guidance and resources are major obstacles to
overcome as many parents, particularly those who are
themselves aging and in need of assistance, struggle just to
make it through the day.

The Hope for Tomorrow project, a collaborative
initiative between HDI, Sanders-Brown Center on
Aging at the University of Kentucky and the
Retirement Research Foundation, seeks
to provide valuable information to
families of individuals with disabilities
so they are able to successfully navigate
resource and financial planning. Given
the reality of limited resources, the
impact that assets can have on a
person's eligibility for governmental
programs, and the complex emotional
issues, knowledge is very
important in this process.
