Stop underfunding group homes which leads to the abuse of people with disabilities

This petition had 2,854 supporters


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.
