We need your help!
It is critical that the State Budget for the year beginning on April 1, 2016 include funding to address the need for support in the following areas: fair compensation for our frontline staff, providing choice and opportunity for employment in our community, and residential housing options for people with I/DD living at home with aging caregivers.
Please join us in our advocacy efforts so that the needs of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities are in the forefront of our Legislators minds.
We urge you to write a letter to the Governor asking for his support through increased funding in the budget. Click for more details and to access a draft letter that you can customize to tell your story.
