The closures and downsizing of institutions has resulted in the dislocation of many vulnerable individuals from residences in which they have lived for years and has also contributed to the lack of available options for families on waiting lists looking for services.
Several facilities are slated to be closed in the future which would further reduce available services for families.
AS RESIDENTS OF NEW YORK STATE AND CONCERNED CITIZENS, WE OPPOSE THE ELIMINATION OF VITAL OPWDD STATE SERVICES.
PLEASE SIGN THE OPWDD CONTINUITY OF CARE BILL
