VOR and Olmstead – A Request

Hello Parents & Friends!

If you are not familiar with VOR, I urge you to visit their website.   The organization works on a national level that supports their mission:

Speaking out for People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.

VOR has asked us to help them “Spread The Word” regarding the U.S. Supreme Court’s Olmstead decision:

For too long, the U.S. Supreme Court’s Olmstead decision has been misrepresented as requiring all people with intellectual and developmental (I/DD) disabilities to be served in community settings regardless of individual choice.  This twisting of the law has caused thousands of individuals to lose their homes and work places.

It’s time to correct the myth!

Olmstead allows for a full range of services to address the diverse needs of individuals with I/DD, including large and small Intermediate Care Facilities, sheltered workshops and day programs. 

Please send a ‘ready to send’ letter to your legislators.
