Urgent: Send Governor Wolf an Email to Advocate for Funding!
On Friday, PAR will be meeting with Governor Wolf's Senior staff, as well as members of the Department of Human Services about our budget request for $540 million dollars in federal relief. PAR needs your help this week to get the message to the Governor that providers need immediate relief to help with COVID related expenses, and our growing workforce crisis!

We are asking everyone to send as many emails to Governor Wolf this week as possible! Simply click the link below and enter in your contact information to send an email directly to Governor Wolf to advocate for critical funding for ID/A services. After you send an email, please share it with others!
Advocacy Videos Reminder:
PAR is also seeking videos to help with our advocacy! We're looking for video clips, approximately one minute long, from Direct Support Professionals, individuals receiving services, and family members sharing how the chronic lack of funding for ID/A services and the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted you.

Below is an example of the video from last year's advocacy. Click here to access the advocacy video toolkit!
