chicER Editorial: State must improve on services for developmentally disabled -
Note-- please share this editorial on your Facebook Pages and on the Facebook Pages of family, friends, State Legislatures, Assemblymembers and the Govenor.  

California’s community of individuals with developmental disabilities is in crisis, but few outside that community are aware of it. That needs to change quickly, before things get even worse.

Support for the state’s roughly 280,000 developmentally disabled individuals has declined to such a state that some are no longer receiving levels of service that are mandated federally, much less what a civilized society owes its most vulnerable members. The decline is wrenching not only for those individuals, but for their loved ones and those who help care for them and support them. (to read more click here)

At The Site of Our Future Reseda Ranch Home a Picture Says a Thousand Words!

Reseda Ranch Jaffe

Congratulations to all at New Horizons on the HUD closing of the Reseda Ranch project.  This means that we can commence the groundbreaking for our 13th home, a residence designed for those individuals who have Down syndrome and Alzheimer's/dementia. It's a great day in the valley, and to prove it Board Member and Treasurer Stu Jaffe was so excited upon visiting the site of our future home, he took this “Selfie” (see if you can find him).

"Autism and the present of presence"
 by Lena Rivkin
(This article was written for the Autism Support Network.
Lena Rivkin, M.F.A., is an artist and graphologist living in Los Angeles.)

It’s that time of year again when everything speeds up, when TV commercials relentlessly remind us of what people might ‘need’ and we turn ourselves inside out to get everything crossed off our to do lists for the holidays.

Yet we tend to get lost in our lists. We become so consumed by what we need to do that we forget why we are doing it at all. All I see around me are angry drivers, furious shoppers and exhausted parents of baffled children who wonder why their parents are so aggravated when it’s supposed to be the ‘happiest time of the year.’

Rebuilding the Lanterman Act
Our system needs a 10% across-the-board funding increase now, and 5% increases yearly, until funding for provider rates and regional center services is reformed.

But for this to happen, your voice and advocacy is needed to see the Lanterman Act preserved. To support this, a 19-member Lanterman Coalition has united around a solution to this challenge preparing a number of tools located at the Lanterman Coalition Website, and we want you to share them far and wide.  Additionally, by clicking here you can learn 10 things you can do as an individual to get our message out.




19 coalition

Sen. Beall asks for 10%...

Will your representatives?

As you know, Senator Beall (D - San Jose) has been a champion for developmental services. He has taken the lead in the Legislature in pushing for funding for our system.

The Senator has written a letter to the chairs of the two subcommittees in the Legislature that get to review - and possibly change - the developmental services Budget. In it, he describes the major challenges facing our system, and asks them to fund the 10% for service providers and regional centers.

This is great news, but it gets better. This isn't just his letter. It can be signed by any legislator. And it has to be. Senator Beall needs his colleagues to help him and support this. But the only way they will is if you ask them to!

Please share this letter with your local legislators (find them here), and ask them if they will sign it and send it back to Senator Beall. If someone agrees to sign it, please email his Chief of Staff, Sunshine Borelli, so she can follow up with them! Her email is sunshine.borelli@sen.ca.gov.

We are making great progress in this fight to reform the way our system is funded. This 10% across-the-board funding increase is a critical first step. And this support letter, if broadly shared and widely signed, will help make this goal a reality.
