YOUR CALLS MADE A DIFFERENCE !
PCA CUTS are off the table for now.
 

Good news the day before Valentine’s Day. At a meeting with advocates this morning, EOHHS Secretary Marylou Sudders agreed to take any cuts to the Personal Care Attendant and Adult Foster Care programs off the table for FY 2015 and FY 2016. YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 The disability and elder communities really responded on this one, starting last week – our thanks to everyone here who called or e-mailed their senators, representatives, or Governor Baker.

However, the battle is not over we don't know if Governor Baker will seek other ways to change the Personal Care Attendant and Adult Foster Care programs. Action is needed to protect independent living.  Please make call Governor Baker and tell him how these programs make a difference in your life. Also call your legislators and thank them for their support of these vital services.
