What Happens When My Child Turns 18? – Overview of Decision-Making Supports for Adults with Disabilities in DC

The Jenny Hatch Justice Project of Quality Trust for Individuals with Disabilities (JHJP) provides free legal services to low-income District residents with disabilities who have questions about their rights to make decisions or who are facing or are in overly restrictive guardianships. We are generously funded by the D.C. Bar Foundation to help serve the community. Advocates for Justice and Education, Inc. (AJE) is DC’s federally designated parent training and information center, you can learn more about our work at www.aje- dc.org or by following us on social media. We are excited to work with Quality Trust to bring this event to
