Petitioning Comissioner Virginia Department of Health

Keep the Winchester Child Development Center open

Effective July 1, the Child Development Clinic in Winchester will no longer be seeing clients, and that they will be closing their doors later this summer because the Department of Health will no longer fund their program. If you also feel saddened by this news, and would like to do something to help advocate for our friends at the CDC, please sign this petition. As it currently stands, any child in our area who needs an evaluation will now have to go to the Harrisonburg/JMU clinic (imagine your child on his or her worst day, having to drive well over an hour one way, and then having to sit through an evaluation!!). Additionally, don't forget that the CDC also facilitates the DD Waiver application process for our kids! WE NEED THE CDC IN OUR COMMUNITY! Please, if ever the time to advocate, now is the time. This is a PRECIOUS community service provider for the Northern Shenandoah Valley, and I cannot fathom not having them in our neighborhood.
Please spread the word.....
