Longstanding underinvestment in community-based services has meant that our direct support workforce has been in crisis for too long. People with #disabilities and their families pay the price in reduced access to services. Read more:

Thank you, [@insert member of Congress’ Twitter handle], for meeting with us on the crucial need to invest in community-based services for people with disabilities!


An ongoing direct support workforce crisis has already forced many providers to close services or turn away new referrals. Because community-based providers are reliant on Medicaid funding, they cannot adjust to increased costs of service delivery without additional funding, and are forced to make cuts to programs and services, resulting in reduced access for people with disabilities.

We join @TheRealANCOR in our appreciation of the #DisabilityCommunityAct to protect people with disabilities’ access to long-term supports and services. Want to lend your voice? Read about this important bill and send word to your member of Congress to support this important measure:

[Insert tag for Member of Congress], please support the #DisabilityCommunityAct. This bill includes important funding that would guarantee continued access to long-term supports and services for people with disabilities. We hope we can count on you to be a legislative champion for people with disabilities.
