Every year the Going Home Coalition host a Legislative Coffee in the Capitol. It is an informal time with legislators to discuss rebalancing and community. I always enjoy this coffee because this event gives legislators the opportunity to discuss with individuals what their life is like outside of state institutions. After the coffee, we head over to the Capitol to talk to more legislators! This year we were able to attend the House Hearing on DSP Wages!

Always a long but good day.
