May 03, 2023
On Wednesday, May 03, 2023 Community Options Inc. was present in Harrisburg for an advocacy event for direct support professionals. We were advocating for Governor Shapiro’s budget to reflect pay increases for direct support employees. We were present for a press conference where several state representatives, family members, and executives from other agencies spoke on the need for an increased wages. From the western Pa region, two individuals supported of Corey and Josh, made the trip to Harrisburg to advocate and tour the capitol building. We did get to meet briefly with Jessica Benham (second picture) who is the representative for the 36th district in Allegheny county. Both, Corey and Josh, were well spoken at the event. Great job representing, Community Options Inc.!
