CP Unlimited Leads Largest Cohort of Advocates to Albany, March 23

On March 23, CP Unlimited led the largest contingent of CP team members, family, self-advocates, and persons supported ever assembled in organizational history to the Legislative Office Building of the New York State Capitol to attend the New York Disability Advocates rally in support of increased funding for the I/DD field via an 8.5% Cost of Living Allowance and other provisions

Rallying in Staten Island for Increased Support for DSPs and The I.DD Field

Advocating for our Direct Support Professionals and the people we support is an ongoing priority for the entire CP Family. In recent months, staffing shortages and stagnant reimbursement rates from state government have led to a more acute situation where the field of providers are experiencing universal gaps in coverage. To maintain the issue in the forefront of elected officials and policymakers, CP Unlimited joined other groups on the Willowbrook Campus in Staten Island on Friday, March 10, to demand increased support and raise awareness of the issues facing our Agency and others. Many folks came from our Cora Hoffman Center which houses the Agency’s Day Habilitation and Article 16 clinic.
