What do Californian’s value most?

IHSS Coalition

This story comes from the Fruitvale neighborhood of East Oakland. Regina Scott, a retired nurse, struggles to pay her bills, put healthy food on the table, and care for her disabled brother Ned, as the Governor and legislature threaten to cut the programs that allow Ned to live with his family and be a part of his community. The cuts to In Home Supportive Services and Adult Day Health Centers will devastate families caring for elder and disabled loved ones all over California and put a strain on already weak local economies when 375,000 jobs are eliminated along with the programs. Courtney Supple brings you the story:

You can contact the members of the Joint Conference Committee, who are now reviewing the budget.  And I’m sure the Governor would love to hear from you, as well.
