We Need Advocates
To clients, families, guardians and friends of Willows Way,
We are sending this information to all of you in the hopes that we may be able to find folks who would be interested in learning more about advocacy for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. And here’s why...
If you’re involved with Willows Way or any other support provider, this likely comes as no surprise. Providers are experiencing a staffing shortage like we have never seen before. It isn’t just at Willows Way or only in Missouri. It’s national and there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight. Agencies have been working alongside industry legislative advocates in an attempt to secure increased state funding that would allow us the pay Direct Care Professionals (DSPs) higher wages.
