MEETING CANCELLED; TO BE RESCHEDULED
The Town Hall will feature testimony – lived experience – from people that depend on Department of Human Services (DHS)
(Medicaid, disability home services, SNAP, etc.) and front-line public employees that administer services.
Tens of thousands of eligible persons have wrongfully lost benefits. This forum will highlight the
reality of how things work and the prime causes of the crisis.
People are demanding the
Reopening of local north lakefront DHS office
Restaffing agency necessary to meet service needs of the public
Fixing of computer system that has caused backlogs and cancellations of service
Removing barriers to service that are unfair to low income and low-wage persons
Enabling public oversight and accountability to assure quality assistance to residents of
nursing facilities, recipients of Supplemental SSI, and other vital services.
