IDHW Statewide Tour

IDHW, the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, is about to go on tour around Idaho to hear what you have to say.

Two months ago, we wrote about the new Community NOW! group. That is a group where adults with developmental disabilities and intellectual disabilities are at the center. They are sharing what they think about the supports that work best for them.

Now IDHW is going to travel to 11 places in Idaho to hear from adults with developmental disabilities and intellectual disabilities in those places.

You should get a letter about how to sign up to go when the tour comes near you. You have to call or email ahead of time to sign up. Sign up as soon as you get the letter to make sure you get in. People in eastern Idaho should have already gotten the letter. If you do not get one, please let us know.

The ACLU of Idaho, who represents all adults in Idaho's Medicaid DD services program, will also go to these events across Idaho. Just contact us if you want to talk more about these events.

Here are the places where the tour will go:

  • Idaho Falls (April 4)
  • Pocatello (April 5)
  • Twin Falls (April 6)
  • Boise (mid-April)
  • Mountain Home (mid-April)
  • Caldwell (late April)

  • Lewiston (early May)
