3) Program: "Adult Family Homes”
Speaker: Sen Steve O’Ban, 28th Legislative District
One of the major issues that Senator O’Ban has addressed is Adult Family Homes. The district includes Lakewood (and Oakbrook) with a large number of homes for older adults and people with disabilities. However, problems have arisen with some residents with violent or sexual assault histories, sometimes placed in an adult family home as a transitional placement. Hear about the concerns of constituents in the area and some of the solutions Senator O’Ban has offered.
