This is a very difficult and uncertain time for us. We are paying staff right now with now clarity in how we will be reimbursed for that.
There are quite a number of needs we have right now. Would you consider joining us to get through this crisis by doing one or more of the following:
Make a meaningful charitable contribution online
Drop off toilet paper, hand sanitizer, and other toiletry products to one of our offices. Please call in advance to let someone know you are on the way so you don’t have to come inside.
Make sure you ask your elected leaders about how people with disabilities and their caregivers are being monitored and protected.
