State Representative Dave Yaccarino, a member of the legislature’s Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Caucus (I/DD) attended the ARC Connecticut’s 5th Annual Family Hearing Day. The room was filled beyond capacity at the Legislative Office Building on Wednesday, February 21, 2018. Families came from all over the state to provide testimony of how state-sponsored services improve their daily lives. “It was very moving to be a part of this day,” said Rep. Yaccarino. “I’d like to thank all of the families that came to Hartford to provide such moving testimony. Based on the number of individuals that showed up to ARC Connecticut’s 5th Annual Family Hearing Day, it is clear that our most vulnerable citizens and their families depend on fiscally sound state services to survive. We must ensure funding for these vital services.”
