In light of several articles written in the Oregonian in recent months, a community meeting has been set up to discuss ways of dealing with the crisis of abuse and neglect experienced by adults with developmental disabilities in our state. The idea is to brainstorm ideas on what can be done NOW instead of waiting for the legislature to convene in 2009.
Come and share your thoughts/wisdom about domestic violence, ombudsman programs, protection task forces, and common sense on how we can combat this ongoing problem in Oregon. The meeting will take place at the United Way building at 5:00 PM on April 14th. It will be held in room # 10. The address is 619 SW 11th Ave. If you care about the safety and well being of this underserved population, come and let your voice be heard.
