The Best Life Alliance is statewide coalition of more than 130 organizations, people with disabilities, families and supporters advocating for Minnesota’s Home & Community-Based Services. Founded in 2014, this coalition was previously known as The 5% Campaign.
Minnesota’s effective Home & Community- Based Services (HCBS) allow people with disabilities to receive services tailored to meet their needs. These essential services foster skill development, provide job coaching and medical care, ensure health and safety, and much more.
