Tell Governor You Want Family Care
Now is the time to advocate for Family Care and IRIS statewide and end waiting lists in your county!
Over 10 years ago, Wisconsin began to reform its long-term care system with new cost-effective programs like Family Care and IRIS. Now these programs are available in 57 of the state's 72 counties. People with disabilities in those counties are receiving the services and supports they need to be independent, productive, and included in all facets of community life – and without a wait!
Your county is one of the 15 in Wisconsin that does not have Family Care and IRIS. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Gov. Walker is currently developing his state budget for 2013-2015 that will be presented to the legislature next year. Now is the time to contact Gov. Walker and tell him that you want Family Care and IRIS in your county! Ask Gov. Walker to include funding in his budget so that all people with disabilities in Wisconsin have access to Family Care and IRIS and the services and supports they provide.
You can contact the Governor’s Office via email at email@example.com or phone at (608) 266-1212.
Don’t miss out on this critical opportunity to advocate for Family Care and IRIS in your county!
