The National Community of Practice (NCoP) for Supporting Families welcomed five new states in September 2019. Teams from Virginia, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Michigan, and Minnesota traveled to UMKC IHD to learn about working together for Systems Change at the state level. Sheli Reynolds, Associate Director, UMKC IHD, led the orientation meeting, with support from Jenny Turner, Jane St. John, Crystal Bell, and Carol Calhoun. Participants learned about implementing state policies and practices that better support individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities and their families.
