On May 26, 2022, twenty-six disability advocates had in-person meetings with 31 legislators and/or their aides about the in-home direct care workforce crisis that thousands of people with disabilities are facing in Ohio.

This group discussed their concerns, issues with the direct care system, and potential solutions. An informational packet was distributed to all members of the Ohio legislature detailing information related to low pay, complicated systems, and lack of recruitment and retention efforts within this workforce.

Advocates expressed the urgent need for Ohio to develop long-term solutions as the emergency-level workforce shortage is putting people who need these services at serious risk of institutionalization or injury.
