Re: “It Takes a (Farm) Village

Bretigne, I imagine Lindseyis referring to the Olmstead Act, which is mentioned in the article:
"And yet, Camphill communities and similar facilities for people with special needs have come under tough scrutiny in recent years. "We're challenged by a federal ruling that will come into effect in 2019 called the Olmstead Act, which in essence says that rural communities like this are isolating and shouldn't exist," says Henderson. The ruling came about as a response to a few bad-egg rural facilities (most famously, Willowbrook in Staten Island, which in the 1960s and `70s housed some 6,000 developmentally disabled people in horrific conditions, using overmedication and restraint). "But Camphill is so porous. We're so open to the outside world, so in touch with social workers and inspections. There's not much going on here that's not visible."
