What is Mi Via?
Mi Via – which stands for my way – is a self-directed waiver program for intellectually disabled individuals designed to help them manage their own customized services that best fit into their lives. It is an alternative to the standard home and community based services waivers that currently exist.

What is Self-Direction?
Self-Direction gives individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities greater control over their lives and more freedom to lead a meaningful life in the community. Participants have the authority to exercise decision-making over their waiver services and have the responsibility for managing them in a manner that best meets their needs to achieve outcomes that are important to them. Participants develop his/her individual service and support plan (SSP) and direct all services and supports identified in his/her plan.
