Town of North Hempstead Supervisor Judi Bosworth attended the Long Island Family Support Services Advisory Council’s 27th Annual Legislative Breakfast on October 4 at the Huntington Hilton. The event focused on managed care for people with developmental disabilities. During the event, Supervisor Bosworth presented a proclamation of recognition to Cecilia Amoroso who was being honored for her volunteerism and dedication to help others.
In 2016 the Supervisor created the Town of North Hempstead Disability Advisory Committee to act as an added support system to residents with disabilities, their families and caregivers within the Town. The DAC serves to disseminate information to people with disabilities, their families, and caregivers as well as to work to ensure that all citizens are connected to resources and services. The DAC expresses concerns of the disability community, recommends possible solutions, and conveys such recommendations to the appropriate government body. The overall goal of the committee is to improve the quality of community life and promote individuality.
The Family Support Services Advisory Council’s goal is to advocate on behalf of all families who have family members with a developmental disability and to continually improve the quality of services for individuals and families throughout New York State.
