Increase funding

As I see it, I agree with the state that it is far between and less expensive to keep families caring for their disabled relatives. But where is the much needed support for that to happen. When do our families truly become a priority in the funding to support this and keep children/ siblings within the family hotel and cared for. No one will love and care for them like their parents and siblings. But please fund the waivers, offer true respite, and open more slots. Also hold these so called facilitators and care coordinators accountable to ensure Virginia's disabled citizens are truly be cared for.
