Peer 2 Peer Support Initiative in Connecticut

The state of Connecticut has developed helpful information about creating a peer support program. A person who receives services can be hired to be a supporter.

For example, a self-advocate who does a great job managing their money might be hired to teach and support someone how to budget. Or a self-advocate who is skilled at menu planning might be hired to teach and support someone how to make a grocery list and do some cooking.

In the state of Connecticut, people can use funding in their HCBS waiver to pay a peer to support them. Here are links to the information used in Connecticut to promote Peer 2 Peer support
