Based on decades of evidence-based research and technical assistance, brings together the diverse, expert perspectives and discusses the leading efforts of the past three decades in the field of disability and community services. The book highlights the development of community service systems in the US, underlining the importance of deinstitutionalization, family and community support, user-directed and consumer-controlled community integration and inclusion, and universal and barrier-free design movements.

An introduction to the field of community services administration, the book covers:

Theory and history
Long-term support services in the US
Family support services
Housing and community
Employment and "adult day programs"
Comparative systems at the state level
Services at the city level
Issues in rural and independent living
Public and individual budgeting/finance
Contemporary workforce issues
Intergovernmental relations
Disability public policy and policy research
International agendas

The book explores a framework that would finally bring together the community and community development worlds. It describes models and theories of disability, long-term services and supports in communities, comparative community service systems and exemplary services, contemporary administrative areas, the national policy research and international human rights agendas, and the future of public administration, disability, and community in the global context. It provides a beginning point to consider what the "disability" field "publicly knows" and what can be done to develop a full conceptualization and actualization of the future of services and communities in the twenty-first century.
