A Day in My Shoes is a grassroots campaign to raise awareness of the caregiver shortage for Floridians with intellectual and developmental disabilities. This near-crisis situation impacts the quality of care and endangers the lives of our state’s most vulnerable citizens.
Florida ranks 50 out of 51 states in funding services for Floridians with intellectual or developmental disabilities. The shortage has a ripple effect on family members, employers, the community, and the state. It’s time for Florida to take a step forward and solve this crisis.
