Illinois Caregiver Crisis

Please contact your legislators to help solve the shortage of Direct Care Staff supporting individuals with disabilities in Illinois. 

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.

Take Action!
