TELL YOUR STORY! RISE UP TOGETHER TO ADDRESS THE DSP WORKFORCE CRISIS

For long before the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a shortage of Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) for people with IDD – but recently this problem has been exacerbated due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The staff shortage has turned into an emergency that requires swift action. It is time for us to rise up together to tell our elected officials how important DSPs are to the daily lives of individuals with disabilities.

We know it is difficult for some of us to share our stories, but we are at a crossroads and this is the only way to help our elected officials understand the gravity of the staffing crisis for individuals, families and providers.

Let’s Join BJ Stasio to let the Governor know how serious this is for people with I/DD (Intellectual/Development Disabilities)

Tell Your Personal Story and ask Governor Kathy Hochul to RISE UP for DSPs!
