Definition

Disability Hub MN is a free statewide resource network that helps people with disabilities solve problems, navigate the system and plan for their future.

Background

In 2005, through funding from a CMS Real Choice Systems Change Grant, DHS launched the Disability Linkage Line® (DLL).

In 2017, DHS updated the DLL and relaunched it as Disability Hub MN in recognition of an evolution in the services of the DLL. Since 2006, DLL has focused on providing information and assistance. Today, options counselors not only help people find information, they're trained to make it easier for people with disabilities to:

  • • Review and understand the scope of their benefits
  • • Understand their health insurance options
  • • Create a plan to enter the workforce or maintain employment
  • • Make sure they're getting the most out of employment and benefits
  • • Strategize ways to live more independently
  • The Metropolitan and Southeastern Minnesota Centers for Independent Living provide Disability Hub MN services statewide. Disability Hub MN operates as part of the MinnesotaHelp Network, which includes Senior LinkAge Line®, 800-333-2433; Veterans Linkage Line™, 888-LinkVet; and the online resource database, MinnesotaHelp.info®.
