House Bill 349 is a joint advocacy effort between The Arc of Florida and Disability Rights Florida this legislative session.
In addition, Victory Living Programs and the Arc thanks Senator Aaron Bean for his efforts this session to raise the wages of the Direct Support Professionals. Senator Bean put approximately $16 million in his proposed Health and Human Services Appropriations Bill to try to raise the wages of our front line staff. We have also requested that Senator Bean and Representative Travis Cummings appropriate $4.5 million more in the appropriations process during the end of session in conference, to raise the wages of the front line workers in the Adult Day Training Programs.
Victory Living Programs provides individualized services and opportunities to persons with disabilities so that they may experience life to its fullest and reach their highest level of independence.
