She has a disability. They closed her workshop. Her story will break your heart.

What hapens when sheltered workshops close? 

 

A recent letter to the editor in a Buffalo, NY paper told the story from one mother's perspective. 

 

It will break your heart.

This is the true outcome for the vast majority of people with disabilities, once s state decides to close down sheltered workshops. Yes, some people with disabilities perhaps even up to a third, may be able to find work in the community.

 

 

But what about the rest? For all the talk about protecting safety nets, NYS sure picked a strange item to cut. For those who want to find work - yes, great. Help them do it. But for the rest who thrive in workshops, don't destroy their lives!
