I hope this all works out for the best

Article posted on March 5, 2017

We did not get our news feeds today, why, I don’t know.  There was one piece in the Altoona Mirror brought to my attention by a friend, about the shifting of many, not all, disabled workers at sheltered workshops in PA to jobs in the private sector.  This is a controversial situation with advocates for the disabled ending up on both sides.  It was an interesting story and I am looking further into these changes.  As a former president of the board of the Arc of Blair County, I am concerned about the people who work at these places and understand what change means to them and their families.  I hope this all works out for the best.
