A report presenting the results of the Family & Individual Needs for Disability Supports (FINDS) survey, launched in 2017 by ICI's Research and Training Center on Community Living in collaboration with The Arc of the United States to assess the status of caregivers of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) in the United States. The survey and resulting Community Report shed light on the experiences of families who provide supports to a family member with I/DD.
