Our Vision

Our vision is that Indiana’s long-term services and supports system ensures that every Hoosier is engaged in determining and meeting their individual support needs by providing them with access to quality, trusted information, a full network of services in their community and publicly-funded subsidies when needed.

In other words, Hoosiers get the Right Services, at the Right Time, in the Right Place, at the Right Cost.
