Subject: Central Illinois DSP Workforce Crisis

Central Illinois I/DD Community Provider Agencies:

As you may be aware, a number of statewide membership associations are working collaboratively to bring attention to the impact the DSP workforce crisis is having on community agencies and the people we support.

We are hoping you’ll join other providers of community CILA, DT and ICFDD services at a regional meeting. We are helping to convene to share information and resources on statewide efforts underway to address the crisis and develop a strategy for making this issue heard in our local community and among our representatives in Springfield.

This meeting is open to all providers of community I/DD services so please forward this invitation to any other providers in the Central Illinois region that you are connected with.  The meeting details are below; please let us know if you or a key member of your organization will be able to join us and feel free to contact us with any questions you may have about this effort.

            Friday, April 8, 2016 10:00 – 11:30 a.m.
Freedom Hall, 349 West Birchwood, Morton, IL
            This is the same location as the North Central Network meetings
            Contact: rmessner@achh.org

We hope you’ll be joining us on April 8th and I look forward to working with you on this critical issue.
