Workforce: Maura Sullivan, Kathleen Amaral Take Part In Southcoast Human Service Legislative Advocacy Breakfast

On Friday, January 24, Director of Government Affairs Maura Sullivan served as the emcee for the Southcoast Human Service Advocacy Legislative Breakfast at White’s of Westport.

The breakfast focused on a discussion of the Direct Support Professional Workforce Shortage Crisis, which continues to be one of The Arc’s top priorities. Advocacy Alliance Coordinator Kathleen Amaral, who has a 15-year-old son with complex medical needs, offered thoughts on her experience of the shortage from a family perspective.

A dozen legislators and staff members were present for this important discussion, including Senate Chair Michael Rodrigues.

We’re so grateful for everyone who came out and made the breakfast such a success! Together, we will continue to work to address the crisis in the DSP workforce.
