Stop underfunding group homes which leads to the abuse of people with disabilities
0 have signed. Let’s get to 5,000!
By underfunding and under monitoring group homes in Illinois, legislators have created an environment of abuse and neglect for people with disabilities. Illinois ranks #47 in funding for persons with developmental disabilities. As a result, the level of care being provided is often substandard and dangerous.
This is not a political issue, this is an issue of providing adequate and care for our most vulnerable citizens.
The scope of abuse and neglect in group homes was recently reported in a Chicago Tribune Watchdog Investigation http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/watchdog/ct-group-home-investigations-cila-met-20161117-htmlstory.html
Please be sign the petition and be a voice for the many who suffer in silence.
