Over 21,00 signatures were lodged with the Ohio General Assembly in 2015 in support of 

ICFs, sheltered workshops, and facility-based day programs.

Petition for Choice



Petition for Choice

In 2015, DAA submitted a total of 21,295 petition signatures to the Ohio Assembly.  These signatures were critical in getting immediate threats to Intermediate Care Facilities (ICFs) removed from the budget and garnering support for ICFs, sheltered workshops and facility-based day services with state legislators.

Thank you to everyone who helped with this very important initiative.  Continued advocacy is needed to ensure that these programs remain in tact.  Please keep checking our website for updates and information on how you can help.
