INDIANA (Indiana's NewsCenter) - Indiana officials are looking into a shocking report that some state workers have suggested leaving disabled people at homeless shelters.
The report says "Bureau of Developmental Disabilities Services" employees have told parents and advocates they could leave severely disabled people at shelters if they can't be cared for at home and if they haven't received Medicaid waivers to help them live independently.
Administrators at Indiana's Welfare Agency say that's a violation of policy and workers who suggest that option will be disciplined.
One advocate, though, thinks the suggestion is an expression of frustration about state budget cuts.
