CALL TO ACTION - Write Your Senator and Representative Today
As the Rhode Island legislature starts to grapple with the State budget for the coming year, they are facing many tough decision.
You need to tell your local legislator why it is so important to maintain the Governor’s recommended funding for DD services and to pass Article 23.
This year the Governor put a little over $6 million in her proposed budget for DSP wage increases. These are dollars that are specifically targeted for staff salaries. Through the advocacy of CPNRI and its member agencies, we have made it clear that we are facing a workforce crisis due to the inability to attract and keep competent and caring staff. We have explained that this is largely due to low wages for very challenging work.

Recycling is a green activity environmentally, but it can also be green economically -- and Jessica Zettl is making use of both aspects. Jessica, who receives support from Perspectives' Adult Residential Services, is joined by staff member Daniel Schiappa each Tuesday morning to collect recyclables.
"It's fun for her," says Daniel. "She's motivated to earn extra cash for outings, and she enjoys her day." He also notes that she's "a very hard worker and wants to do her best."
