STATE BUDGET HITS SENIORS AND PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES
Governor Newsom's proposed budget drastically cuts essential programs that keep seniors and people with disabilities safe and supported – and out of institutions. Some have characterized it as heartless, ageist, and ableist. Groups are urging the Governor and the Legislature to rescind cuts to senior and disabled programs.  Learn what you can do to fight back on the Steppingstone Adult Day Health Centers website.

In 2013, the Governor's budget eliminated Adult Day Health Services, but a successful campaign preserved the program. We need to act again.
