This past week, we said farewell to a leader with a steady hand who has been a friend to The Arc and others since joining the legislature in late 1991: Speaker of the House Robert DeLeo. The State House News article quoted Speaker DeLeo’s overarching philosophy: that “what this job is all about, very simply, is helping people.”
As many of you know may know by now, many residential providers (congregate homes in the Department of Developmental Services) have been provided appointments for vaccinations for individuals with disabilities and staff. This update is a snapshot for what to expect. We thank the Department of Developmental Services for the information. Please note some of this information will change as the vaccination process evolves.
