I did get a positive response from Rep.Tom Suozzi who represents Stephen’s district of Bellerose, Queens. Today I made a call to Congressman Gregory Meeks of Queens. Even though others may think my efforts are futile or may laugh at me I will continue to call as many elected officials as possible. I cannot give up on Stephen. I Love my brother Stephen and would do anything for him.
Restore the programs and services that have been eliminated from Stephens Group Home Residence and Training Center!! Hire more trained staff and No More Layoffs! No cuts to Medicaid! Everyone out there please call! Your Calls DO matter!! If we deluge Our Elected Officials with phone calls, email messages, texts and visits to their offices they must take notice!! No more apathy! Get Involved!!
I encouraged Rep. Tom Suozzi to visit Stephen’s Group Home Residence located at Bellerose, Queens. To Come see the wonderful work QCP does for developmentally disabled adults. Also visit AABR located in Jamaica, Queens which does an excellent job of educating and training adults with multiple disabilities. Plus to Bring as many Congresspersons, Senators and other Reps. Perhaps if our Elected Officials see the faces of the people who will be affected and are affected by budget cuts and possible loss of Medicaid their minds can be swayed.
Stephen is a Mighty Autism Warrior. How about you? Please let me know which elected officials you contacted in your area and their response. (This only applies to U.S.A. residents)

Im so happy to hear you got a response!!
So am I. My goal is to get my American Followers/Subscribers to participate in calling their elected officials. If we allow the government to keep chipping away at benefits, closing programs and eliminating services one day you, your loved ones, friends, neighbors will be left empty handed. Today Stephen’s benefits are at risk. Tomorrow……Well who knows?
So true! I had a long career working for special education programs both in group homes and the school system. Its a fight worth fighting!
We must prevent a return to the ugly warehousing of the 50s, 60s and 70s. I shall keep fighting.
Love how you advocate and take care of him!
