Home By Choice (HBC) is a program through the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS) that helps people living in nursing facilities return to the community to live independently in their own home, apartment, or with family. DADS contracts with several local organizations that provide assistance to make the transition with appropriate support back to the community of choice. CRCIL is a subcontractor under Austin Center for Independent Living (ARCIL).
The HBC program provides assistance with:
DADS Community Care Services
Therapies and Habilitation
Medical Equipment and Supplies
Minor Home Modifications
Housing or moving back home
Grants for paying moving expenses, deposits, household items, and other related expenses
Information on living in the community with suitable support
HBC services are available to people of all ages with all types of disabilities; however, applicants must meet service eligibility criteria.
