The California Community Living Network (CCLN) is holding a briefing on Friday, September 18th from 12:00PM-2:00PM titled “In-Person Services in a Pandemic.”

CCLN has over 105 Agency Memberships, large and small, across the state of California providing Supported Living, Independent Living, Respite, Personal Assistance and Employment Services to Californians with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.

We will be spotlighting how people served, families, people providing services and service providers of in-person services, have responded to the Coronavirus public health crisis.

The 18th wraps up National Direct Support Professional Week (9/13-9/19) so we will be featuring DSP's who have been the essential workers on the frontlines, providing in-person services, during a pandemic.

California Community Living Network is holding a Legislative Briefing on In-Person Services in a Pandemic. We have some amazing and inspirational stories of how in-person services has kept Californians with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities safe during this public health crisis. 

We know you are all very busy but thought everyone could use some feel good inspirational stories during somewhat dark times. 

We are so excited to be featuring the in-person supports that have been provided to Californians with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (I/DD) throughout this Pandemic to keep them safe. There has been so much focus on services that have been suspended during this public health crisis that we feel like everyone needs to be reminded that the critical in-person face to face services are still happening!

We have some amazing stories of courage and dedication!

We purposefully planned this event during National Direct Support Professionals Week so that we could highlight the staff that have defied stay at home orders, recognized that they are essential workers, faced their fears and showed up to work directly with people with I/DD. Direct Support Professionals (DSP's) have continued to provide crucial in-person supports to people with I/DD in their own homes, in their families homes and at their jobs, as they are also an essential worker at a grocery store, for example!

The service providers of in-person services have gone above and beyond to train their essential staff on infection control & personal protection. When day services discontinued providing services, they were the ones to arrange staff coverage to continue to provide in-person staff for the health and safety of the people served. When the day services side of the DD system ceased to provide in person services, the residential side of the DD system rose to meet a pandemic moment in a COVID19 minute! These are the truly frontline essential workers in the developmental disabilities system in this Pandemic!! Supported Living Services, Independent Living Services, Respite, Personal Assistance and Employment had to step up to the plate, and we did!

By now, we are all pretty exhausted but remain committed to meeting the needs of our most vulnerable Californians throughout this public health crisis!
