As laws and policies continue to change and develop in our state and our nation, FREE is so proud to support the #bFair2DirectCare campaign.  #bFair2DirectCare is an online movement urging Governor Cuomo how important it is to make sure he allocates money in his budget to help non-profits pay their DSP salaries as the minimum wage goes up.  Out DSPs are our front lines.  Without them, our industry cannot exist.

To support this cause, FREE has been asking individuals, Valued Team Members, and family members of people who receive services to share on camera, what this issue means to them, in hopes that their stories will reach the ears of our legislators.

Join the movement and share your story using the hashtag #bFair2DirectCare!

If you would like to be filmed and featured on FREE’s Social Media, send an email to Mission_Advancement@familyres.org
