Denna Zyskind's story:
I have been a vendor operating ARM homes and a community providers, who are struggling to make ends meet, forced to have additional staff on. The consumers want to go to program but can't.
The minimum wages increase from 8 to 9 dollars an hour was not fully reimbursed. I don't know who developed the program but it did not cover the costs of the increase. In addition we have started to pay medical insurance for the staff and we are so deep into the red. We need immediate help, or the whole system will collapse. We have worked so hard for the past thirty years. Now it looks like the end is near. You are the only ones that can come to the rescue. Please help us to continue to serve this incredible population.
