No Wrong Door

The District of Columbia envisions implementing a user-friendly No Wrong Door (NWD) system that is highly visible and accessible for all people with disabilities, older adults, and their families to learn about and have easy access to a full range of integrated long term services and supports (LTSS) that assist them to live with dignity and as independently and as long as possible in their homes and fully included in their communities.

The District of Columbia will create a network of government and non-profit organizations that will engage in person and family-centered planning and provide responsive and comprehensive information about and referrals for LTSS. The information received will enable people with disabilities, seniors and their families to make informed choices regarding the LTSS they need to live with dignity in their homes and be fully included in their communities for as long as possible.
