In the past year, I have advocated on behalf of special needs kids at Park District Meetings, the City Council and the School Board. In all cases, my pain was deeply felt by those in charge but I did not make an impact and services were cut.
I am not giving up.
This Tuesday I am attending the first meeting of the Human Services Task Force.
Although my gut says, don't take the time off work...that I'd be better off trying to feed my child by putting in the hours at the office than attending another heart felt meeting, I will be there and I hope you will too.
Here is the information:
All residents and human service organizations are invited to participate in the first phase of our Human Services Task Force program by attending one of two needs assessment meetings at the West Ridge Center, 636 Ridge Road. Choose between two dates to attend:
- Tuesday, April 24 8:30-10:30 a.m.
- Saturday April 28 10:00 - noon.
Please join me. I'll be the one wearing my heart on my sleeve.
