First, let me say thank you to all of you who voted. While the data is not complete, it looks that we may have had some record turnouts on Election Day in spite of the rain! With many newly elected officials heading into office for the first time in January, now is the time to speak up, be heard, and advocate.
We have an opportunity to build rapports and help educate a new group of elected officials who aren’t familiar with us, or the needs of the various communities we serve. Although we’re connecting with new people our challenge is still the same— to create bi-partisan initiatives to support the development of our communities; and we are the voices and the teachers.
As industry leaders you can count on us to speak up about early intervention services, early childhood learning, and services for people with intellectual disabilities; and you can count on us to call attention to the needs of the people we support, their families, and friends. We will also continue to advocate for the recognition of our staff, their cares, and their compensation.
But can we count on you to speak up too? We would like to know—are you comfortable visiting and meeting with elected officials? Sharing your story and the stories of those who cannot speak for themselves? If you are, please take five minutes to complete our advocacy survey here.
Become an advocate for our community, I want to start a movement—now is the time to speak up.
For current employees of KenCrest, please fill out this advocacy survey.
