The economy obviously has impact on all of us. Of special note is the proposed 7.1% cut to providers like The Arc in September, 2009. We have already taken a 10% cut in Supported Employment, and another 3% to all of our other services retroactive to Feb. 1, 2009. The Department of Developmental Services (DDS) is having a hearing on Friday, Feb. 27th, 3:30 to 6:30 PM, in Oakland at the Elihu M. Harris State Office Building (1515 Clay Street near the 12th Street BART Station). You can also conference call at (800) 230-1085. Your voices and your stories are important and critical. No more cuts!
If you can't be there, please contact your local representatives to stop these additional cuts.
Thank you for your continuing support!
