**ADVOCACY UPDATE**

Last Chance to Push for Rate Increase for Senior Home Care Services

Week of May 27, 2019

 

The State of Illinois General Assembly has one more week of regular session! Human services agencies like Catholic Charities continue to operate under the constant pressure of need far outpacing capacity. The clients we are privileged to serve would always benefit from your engagement with legislators.

Please consider contacting your federal, state, and local legislators--particularly if they are new to their elected offices--with the following message: 

 

My name is ______________________ and I am a board member/supporter of Catholic Charities. Catholic Charities serves thousands of seniors in the Community Care Program in Chicago. We need your help to continue paying the Chicago minimum wage to the homecare aides doing this important work! Please support a rate increase for the Community Care Program of $21.64 per hour in House Bill 2776 and Senate Bill 2019, beginning July 1, 2019. Thank you.
