Don’t let Connecticut’s developmentally disabled be treated like cattle

The recent decision by the Malloy administration to remove services from the most vulnerable citizens in Connecticut is just terrible! The people who are served by the Southbury Training Center participate in day programs which provide them with meaningful activities and in some cases, gainful employment. Day services, as well as mental health services, are often the bright spot in these individuals’ day, but these programs are slated to be cut or eliminated, and all staff will purportedly be laid off by the end of this year.
