The federal Administration on Community Living is traveling to Texas and California to receive direct input from individuals with disabilities, seniors, families, caregivers and service providers about their experiences during recent disasters. For Houston and the Coastal Bend, these experiences are relative to Hurricane Harvey in 2017. If you or your clients or others in these categories were/are still impacted, please encourage them to attend. ACL is attempting to better understand what resources may be needed to improve disaster readiness and resilience.
ACL is working with CBCIL to provide assistance for those who need transportation to attend. Please contact Christina at 883-8461 for more information or to make arrangements.
We’re hoping for a good turn-out, and appreciate your help in getting the word out. Click here for the full handout.
