Join us for a Virtual Workforce Crisis Rally, Major Speakers Invited!

The existing workforce crisis escalated dramatically in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Without immediate action, this emergency will continue to force service reductions, program closures, and loss of care people with I/DD throughout the state. We need your support and your participation!

Join New York Disability Advocates, Hudson Valley Providers, family and self-advocates, DSPs, and other speakers to discuss the state’s workforce crisis of Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) that is impairing the quality of care for New York’s I/DD community.

Event Speakers will include: 

♦ Tibi Guzmán, Executive Director/CEO, The Arc Westchester & Parent

♦ Gerard Dohrenwend, President/CEO CP of Ulster County
