Improving Opportunities for Working People With Disabilities: The Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) has released a report, Improving Opportunities for Working People With Disabilities, focused on Medicaid Buy-In (MBI) programs. The report offers recommendations to improve availability of the MBI for workers with disabilities. To develop the recommendations, BPC reached out to stakeholders and hosted public and private discussions with experts on the topic. Participants included current and former state and federal officials, consumers, and other experts. The recommendations, focused on federal action, include "ways to make the Medicaid Buy-in for workers with disabilities more understandable, more accessible, and more relevant as states seek to ensure pathways to successful employment outcomes for these workers." BPC stresses, "the role of strong leadership at the federal and state level is key to the success of these recommendations."

Our Story

Over 60 years ago, a local woman named Nell Moses wanted the very best for her child with disabilities, but faced many obstacles. She turned to the Lawrenceville Jaycees who embraced her and helped open a school focused on the needs of developmentally disabled children. Mrs. Vinie Lowry became Hi-Hope’s first paid teacher in 1961, hosting the school in her own garage for seven years. From these humble beginnings grew the thriving community of service and support that is the Hi-Hope of today.

Much has changed; legislation ensures that children with developmental disabilities receive the full benefit of public education. When these adults graduate from high school, many continue to expand their horizons through the services and support available through Hi-Hope. Through an array of programs, we are continuing on int he tradition of the same caring and innovation sparked by a mother’s love for her son.
