Next Meeting: Tuesday February 10th, 7:00-8:30pm – Easter Seals of DE

Our topic for February’s meeting will be a “Workshop on Advocacy” led by Connie Hughes, recently retired director of DelARF, now a volunteer for Families Speaking UP, Verna Hensley, Vice-President of Public Affairs for Easter Seals, and Thomas Cook, Executive Director of DelARF. The workshop will focus on preparation for upcoming hearings in Dover before the Joint Finance Committee on February 26th and Disability Day on March 25th and other opportunities to make our voices heard by legislators.

In addition, Thomas will update us on progress the State has made on the transition plan related to the CMS regulations discussed at the January meeting when around 100 people attended to hear DDS Director Jane Gallivan. If you are concerned about the future of your loved one with Intellectual Disabilities it is imperative that you attend this meeting.

There is strength in numbers!
