MH Update – 2/10/20 – Momentum Continues to Grow for #3for5: Take One Minute of Your Time to Join Us

The Statewide Human Service Advocates continue the drumbeat for the three percent increase in funding for the Human Services Sector every year for the next five years (#3for5).

Today our colleages at Assocation for Community Living (ACL) are holding their Legislative Day with over 150  meetings, highlighting #3for5.  Tomorrow The ARC NY and the NY Alliance for Inclusion and Innovation are holding a rally in support for #3for5. Wednesday, Strong Non Profits is planning  Legislative Meetings highlighting #3for5.  Last week, the Coalition for Community Behavioral Health Care, the New York State Coalition for Children’s Behavioral Health and the Coalition for Behavioral Health all held legislative and executive meetings identifying #3for5 as a top priority.

Why we are all speaking with one voice is because we are witnessing a crisis in human services that deeply impacts our loved ones, our community and New York’s taxpayers.  That is why we need your support

Your support will continue this momentum–all it takes is a minute of your time to sign on.

If you are interested in helping support the human service sector in our advocacy to get a 3 percent increase in funding, than have your agency sign on today by contacting Sophie Theis at
