ARC Day at the Texas State Capital!

On Tuesday, April 19th, several of The Arc of the Capital Area staff members, clients and client family members visited the Texas State Capital to advocate against the purposed cuts to services for people with disabilities. We came out strong with our message. Protect the current HCS & CLASS services, support funding for low income housing that allows people to live in the community and don’t support funding for state institutions. The following vital services are provided by The Arc Capital Area: Basic Needs & Crisis Assistance, Family & Caregiver Support, Guardianship Services, CLASS, Juvenile Justice Services, Case Management & The Arc of the Arts. Without this funding, thousands of people will lose the critical support they need to live their lives to the fullest. This is a video that our wonderful Lead Art Instructor, Andrew Grimes made to illustrate the important role HCS funding plays in the lives of our clients.

Please help support this cause by contacting your senator and spreading our message! You can do this by clicking here.
