Coalition launches collection of stories about life on ODSP
A collection of personal accounts and stories from 236 people living on income from the Ontario Disability Support Program has been launched by the ODSP Action Coalition. “Telling Our Stories” is a project of the Coalition’s Public Awareness and Advocacy Committee. Stories by ODSP recipients are organized by six themes: issues related to housing, food, parenting and clawbacks; employment and education aspirations; stress and social isolation; transportation and special needs; experiences with service delivery; and program design. See “Telling Our Stories: Disability Should Not Equal Poverty,” July 2010, available at www.odspaction.ca.
