I am a husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend. I believe in sharing my talents and experiences by giving back to the community by giving my time to coaching, church and especially to the disability community. I truly believe that all men and women are created equally.
Q. Don’t people with disabilities work fewer hours in the community than in a sheltered workshop?
Q. Isn’t facility-based employment or sheltered workshop employment more cost-effective?
There are a lot of rumors and misinformation going around in regards to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) rule changes to Home and Community Based Services (HCBS). I thought I would clarify misinformation that is going around and point out the positives of these changes.
I had the honor of co-presenting on topic of Employment First before the South Shore Chamber of Commerce. As I have written a number of times throught the years, I believe that community based employment at competitive wages should be the number one option for individuals with disabilities.
