We had another excellent Executive Forum meeting on Wednesday.

Our featured speaker was Lore Baker, Statewide Housing & Employment First Coordinator, Office of Secretary of the Dept. of Human Services. Lore is a wealth of information and a lot is happening around Illinois regarding Housing & Employment First. Here is Lore’s PowerPoint presentation, “Moving Forward with Housing & Employment First.”

You can also catch Lore at The Arc’s Annual Convention. She will be presenting “Supportive Housing Options Pilot Project” Click here for registration and the complete Convention Program.

I reported on progress on the Direct Support Professional Crisis Campaign, the Governor’s Proposed Budget and important races to watch for the March 15th primary.
Phil reported on new legislation we are following and will share a written report shortly.
