‪CWI attended the 4th Annual NYSRA & NYSACRA Joint Legislative Policy Forum in Albany, NY on Feb 13th and Feb 14th. This forum allowed us to hear from state officials on current topics impacting our industry (wages, managed care etc). It's also a forum to ensure our issues are well represented to the state and to collaborate across agencies. We had a spectrum of representation from CWI attend this forum - a DSP, Admin and a Parent advocate who all work to improve the quality of life for individuals with special needs.

Nick, Christine and Kass had a great time attending the Rally to Support #bFair2DirectCare outside the Governor's mansion! It was a bit of a drive (40+ minutes) and it was cold but everyone who was in attendance had a lot of energy. We continue to support driving home the point with policymakers that a living wage for direct support professionals must be included in this year's budget!
