10/21/2022 – A Great Explanation as to why an 8.5% COLA is necessary for Human Services

Great job by MHANYS Board Chair and Northern Rivers CEO Bill Gettman about why our human services community needs a COLA. He provides real life impact of what not having the ability to retain and recruit staff does to our loved ones. Powerful.  This was in an Assembly hearing on primary prevention but the answer would be similar across all human services. The link is attached below

Also, there is reference from Assembly Chair Andrew Hevesi and Bill about the loss of a leading voice across all children’s services—Jim Purcell.  Jim passed away two weeks ago—he left us with a great legacy of accomplishments. He will be sorely missed
