We need your help! Sign petition to stop budget cuts!

Dec 23, 2013

People Inc. is part of a statewide effort asking Governor Cuomo to prevent further budget cuts. After three years of reductions, we CANNOT accept any additional cuts without impacting both the quality and quantity of supports and services that our agency offers to individuals with developmental disabilities and their families.

Individuals with disabilities, families, friends and providers of services have been working together to ensure that New York State Governor Andrew M. Cuomo honors the state's promise, affirmed in the Willowbrook Consent Decree, to care for those who cannot care for themselves, but we need more impact.

Please sign the petition and share it with family, friends, self-advocates and colleagues to ask them to participate and tell the Governor to KEEP THE PROMISE TO THE MOST VULNERABLE NEW YORKERS!

Please click the link and sign the petition today:

Thank you for your support!
