Families Cannot Be Caregivers Forever!


Many families of people with developmental disabilities have been caring for their loves ones for years. This can be a very challenging job requiring 24-hour attention. Occasionally, it entails coping with significant behavioral challenges. Some parents, particularly elderly parents, can no longer provide the care they once did. As a result, they and their loves ones are in need of new day and/or residential services. Now, more than ever, we need to advocate on their behalf. Please help us reach out to our elected officials.
