Support community-based services for individuals with developmental disabilities
California is closing down it's Developmental Centers. While this means that individuals can get services in a community-based setting where they are closer to friends and family, we need to be sure that the savings from this closure goes back into supporting the Lanterman Act and regional centers.
The move to community-based services is expected to save the state millions of dollars. Under current law, those savings will be directed to the General Fund, to be used for programs that do not help people with developmental disabilities.
Tell California's leaders that these savings must go into a self-sustaining mechanism of income for community-based developmental disability services and the Lanterman Act!
