The October COFAR Voice
Our October 2013 issue of The COFAR Voice is now online, with stories on the disappearance of ICF settings in Massachusetts and the lack of interest shown by the administration and Legislature in national background checks for people hired to care for the developmentally disabled. You can find the new newsletter here.
COFAR is a statewide, nonprofit organization that advocates for choice in, and access to comprehensive and high-quality care for persons with intellectual and other developmental disabilities.
Through the efforts of our family members and volunteers, we advocate for adequate funding and staffing for residential and other programs provided by the Department of Developmental Services. We also provide advocacy information and advice to families and guardians of those with intellectual and other developmental disabilities, wherever they may live.
