Services for Disabled Persons: From Institutions to Communities

Record #:
Two-thirds of North Carolina’s funding for mental health, mental retardation, and substance abuse service goes to maintain state institutions. Reform schools and special schools for blind and deaf children also attract high funding. Meanwhile, community-based programs receive far less money than the institutional programs, despite the state’s commitment to de-institutionalization.
