Big News!!

We have bills before the State Legislature to end what happened to residents in Victoria House!

HB 3204 and SB 6807 will prevent discharge of residents from boarding homes due to their Medicaid Status.

Link to HB 3204:

Link to SB 6807:

There will be a hearing on Monday, February 4th at the Legislature in Olympia. The time and location will be posted as soon as I have the information.

Folks, we need to make some noise on this! Contact your state legislators--contact information is below on this blog. To send a brief message to legislators through an in-state toll-free hotline, call 1-800-562-6000. If you possibly can, be in Olympia for the hearing. If you wish to testify, please plan what you will say and it's perfectly okay to read your testimony. Legislators need to know how this effects residents and their families. Keep your comments succint and to the point and keep them to a maximum of two minutes.

We wanted this so now let's make it happen!!
