Don’t hesitate, be the voice today – advocate!
Let your voices be heard in Lansing. Underfunding has caused many changes and closures to the programs we once offered to our community, including group homes and respite for both adults and children.
We need your help!
Please contact your local state representatives and tell them we need funding for mental health and developmental disabilities programs. This is not a want, it is a need.
Recently, we learned that the Lahser Respite home, which we managed for 30 years and the only one in Oakland County that serves over 100 families, may close due to lack of state funding.
Please help us bring awareness to this important issue. This possible closure has been unanimously one of devastation and outrage for parents losing a critical service. Lahser Respite is a vital service for families who need a safe place that provides professional and compassionate care for their child with a disability.
To learn more on how you can help, contact Kelli Dobner, Chief Development Officer at 248.837.2020 or firstname.lastname@example.org
