An Urgent Need We are already experiencing the effects from a reduction in state reimbursement this year. At this rate, we anticipate that long-term programs, staffing and resources will be negatively impacted. And it could happen sooner rather than later. Over time, we fear it could result in the loss of critical programs for the children currently under our care and detrimental setbacks in programs for our adult individuals.
There Is an Answer We are committed to providing equal services for all individuals, but funds may not permit us to continue them all for very long. Pledge your commitment today and rally for the opportunity to help us continue to offer the highest-caliber programs for children and adults. Help support the following programs that provide our individuals with the opportunity to create an enviable life and be a productive part of society: Adult Services (Day Services & Vocational); Residential Services; Children’s Services; and Health Services.
