The President’s Committee for People with Intellectual Disabilities (PCPID) has released their 2017 report on the DSP workforce crisis.

The intended outcome of this Report is to ensure that the Administration is “fully aware of and understand the effects of the direct support workforce crisis and the opportunities to address it in ways that strengthen the ability of people with intellectual disability to both participate in and contribute to their communities and the American economy. Not only does the crisis facing this workforce threaten people with intellectual disability and their families; it also undermines the stability, efficiency and ability to grow much needed long-term services and supports and, therefore, undermines the overall U.S. economy.”

Our DSP Toolkit is highlighted in the report (page 34), as well as a quote from The Arc of New London County (page 31). The full report includes:

  • Overview of the direct support workforce
  • Critical challenges faced by the long-term services and supports industry
  • Effects of the workforce crisis
  • Economic and other factors that have influenced the crisis
  • Promising practices to address the direct support workforce crisis

It would be great if anybody at targetdomain is able to provide some guidance 🙂 I thought that the most suitable way to accomplish this would be to connect to vape shops and cbd retailers. I was hoping if someone could recommend a dependable site where I can purchase CBD Shops Sales Leads I am already examining creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com.
