Building A Great Life examines the case for closing Connecticut’s state institutions that provide congregate residential care for persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities, many with complex needs who receive a high level of state care and support. Could cost savings realized by closing the Southbury Training School and three regional centers be significant enough to ensure help for the two-thousand Connecticut families on a Department of Developmental Services waiting list for state supports? The one hour documentary explores how the notion of closing state institutions in favor of community living for persons with intellectual disabilities is both a moral and fiscal debate.
