PFLC – VOR Action Alert – Needs Our Support

Hello Parents and Friends of Ludeman Center,

The VOR – Voice of Reason is a national organization that supports the mission to continue providing and improving services for our loved ones that are diagnosed with I/DD (Intellectual and Developmentally Disabled).

There are legislative efforts going on now to reduce the services and sheltered workshops for our I/DD loved ones. VOR is asking us to support their efforts and to reach out to our federal and state legislators regarding sustaining services and workshop environments for the I/DD community.

PFLC is asking that you send your legislators a letter that states the value of these services and reducing services would cause undue harm to your loved ones – especially those that live in an ICF (Intermediate Care Facility). The Elisabeth Ludeman Center is categorized as an ICF, so it is especially important that our legislators hear from us.

Click on the link below for additional information and links to send letters to your legislators. Attached is a document that provides additional information and links for you to support the VOR effort to preserve the services our loved ones rely on.

Send your letters, please!

Thank you.
