Illinois Caregiver Crisis
contact your legislators to help solve the shortage of Direct Care Staff supporting individuals with disabilities
This is needed because a Workforce Crisis
exists due to the lack of resources from the state for the better
part of 20 years.
Wages remain low and organizations
cannot find and retain sufficient staff to ensure quality levels of
service. Statewide, legislation has been introduced to improve
wages in the disability field. You are urged to to contact the
Governor and your local state senator and representative to support
disability services in Illinois.

Direct Care staff assisting individuals with disabilities.
