The people with disabilities need our help. And need people who really care to make a difference in their lives.

I'm signing because I am a direct care worker that passes meds, bathes, feeds, and cares for 10 individuals five days a week. I also have a sister who has special needs and lives in a group home and would like to be assured that she is getting the best care that she needs. Please put us in your budget.

Thanks for adding your voice.

I work as a direct care provider, and I have to go to the food bank in order to eat every month. I work full time in a demanding job, and deserve to be able to afford basic necessities.

Nice budget, Gov. Love it. Love the cigar and vape tax. Love the minimum wage bump. Just don't let this budget leave the developmentally disabled under-served because NYS funding isn't keeping pace with the demand. Thanks, tk

Not funding these workers is not an option. We need this to be covered in our budget.
