The Voice That Matters…

So often I speak on behalf of our special needs populations, but many of our individuals at VBAS are very capable of expressing their own needs and thoughts.  For example, these words from Roger Haburey, shared in closing our Region IV Legislative Rally:

Time For ACTION

 

Parents, Families, Caregivers and Friends….last night was a great turnout at VBAS for our Legislative Rally…this IS the beginning..as we were reminded our current system of community based care for our special needs individuals was built over 40 years ago by determined and compassionate parents, caregivers and friends….this is exactly the way we will keep these quality programs in placecontact your legislator…by phone, by mail, or by email and tell them you want not just level funding for mental health BUT you want to see funding increased so that every special needs citizen in this state receives the services they deserve….follow the link below to find contact information for legislators.
