The goal of attendant services is to support persons with disabilities who need ongoing assistance. The program helps to maintain independence by allowing persons to work, complete their education, and/or to avoid living in a highly supervised setting. The client (or his/her surrogate) has control over the use of services. The services are provided based on the client’s lifestyle, preferences, and abilities.

*Public funding means that the program is paid for, in part or in whole, by the government. Some publicly-funded programs have eligibility requirements and provide services at low cost or no cost to people who qualify. Most of these programs and services though, are also available to people who are able to pay privately (with their own money).
