MOVING forward with you

We provide quality services for children and adults with disabilities to move forward to reach their highest level of independence.

Advocacy

To support your advocacy efforts, CP State has created an updated resource package, including shareable information sheets and talking points. If you have not done so already, please be sure to schedule your virtual appointments with Senators and Assemblymembers as soon as possible to take full advantage of the budget negotiation timeline. 

Fifty years ago, Geraldo Rivera’s expose revealing horrific conditions at Willowbrook State School in Staten Island shocked the nation and forever changed the treatment of people with developmental disabilities across the country. New York State Developmental Disabilities Planning Council’s new documentary, “The Path Forward: Remembering Willowbrook”, highlights lessons learned from the horrors of Willowbrook and celebrates the inclusion of people with disabilities in all aspects of community life.

Care Can’t Wait: Sign the Petition!

In the U.S., support for people with disabilities and older adults who need assistance with everyday activities can be unpredictable, unaffordable, and often unavailable.

Too many families are at a breaking point because of severe underfunding in care programs—and it’s time for a long-overdue investment in these supports and services!

We need:

  • Funding for programs that allow people with disabilities to live at home in their communities, without having to wait years to get the supports they need.
  • #PaidLeaveForAll so workers don’t have to risk losing their jobs when taking time off to care for a loved one.
  • Better pay and benefits for direct care workers, who perform a critical job but do not earn a living wage.
  • Access to high-quality and affordable child care and early education for every family.

We can and must do better to support people with disabilities, older adults, family caregivers, and the direct care workforce!
