Please urge law makers to address the Workforce Crisis in Service for People with Developmental Disabilities!
Dear Friends and Advocates of AbilityFirst,
Individuals with developmental disabilities and their families are going without services and supports due to critical staffing shortages. Decades of underfunding to California’s disability system has driven low wages for Direct Support Professionals and Regional Center Service Coordinators who deliver services to people with disabilities. 

The resulting chronic workforce instability has now become an acute crisis. Join AbilityFirst in urging the Governor and our elected officials to support two proposals currently being considered by the Legislature in the 2022-23 budget.

To learn more about the proposals being considered and to send an email to lawmakers please
