VOR's Public Testimony to the President's Committee for People with Intellectual Disabilities (PCPID)
The President's Committee for People with Intellectual Disabilities is holding the first public meeting of its new term on July 28, 2022.
August is a great time to reach out to your Members of Congress in while they are visiting their districts and traveling around the state. Use this opportunity to schedule an appointment with your representative, attend a meet-and-greet with your senator, or bring your issues to their campaign at a fundraiser.

Due to the shortage of Direct Support Professionals during the Covid Pandemic, the State of Oregon responded to the public health emergency by paying parent caregivers to stay home and provide care for their family membrs with I/DD and autism. As these provisions are set to expire soon, families have reached out, requesting that this program be made permanent.
VOR wrote a letter in support of this initiative, as this extends the choices that families may make in caring for their loved ones. Read VOR's letter supporting family caregivers here.
