Parents Confront Gov. Quinn on Planned Closure of Institutional Care Centers


Parents of developmentally-disabled adults have confronted Governor Pat Quinn over his push to place more such individuals in small community-care facilities, rather than larger state institutions.

 

As a result of Quinn’s policies, two developmental centers, including one in Jacksonville, have been closed… and a third will be soon.

 

But the parents who stopped Quinn after a Statehouse rally Thursday say those larger institutions often provide better care for profoundly disabled people like their children.

 

Other disability rights advocates agree with Quinn that community-based settings provide better and more affordable care.
