The December 2013 COFAR Voice
Our December 2013 issue of The COFAR Voice is now online, with stories on the failure of the DDS system both to protect the victim of a fatal assault at the Templeton Developmental Center and provide adequate services to the alleged perpetrator of the crime; the cutoff of all family contact with a developmentally disabled young woman in a group home; and much more. 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.
