This is something we need to take time to do - write letters and if we can, demonstrate at our representatives offices (locally as well as Sacramento. The dates are February 3rd and the 7th.
Dave Mulvey explained to me that a 30% to regional center services is being considered. This could mean a cut from 5 days to 3 days for day programs, potential elimination of transportation, more cuts to respite (or elimination), and also a reduction in other areas that families need.
Also being considered is cutting IHSS to people who live with family. If the people were to be put into placement situations - are they available? Centers (Institutional) are being closed and there are fewer new group homes.
So please take the time and spread the word. If you are unable to download, contact
me for a copy. Thank you, Debra M-Mc 238-9576 (home) 461-7415 (office T & TH)
