Great Bay Services' Executive Director Pam Lowy has been invited to speak in Washington, DC in front of the Special Committee on Aging on the topic: “Uplifting Families, Workers, and Older Adults: Supporting Communities of Care.” Ms. Lowy will be the only representative of Home & Community Based Services (HCBS) providers to adults with disabilities to speak.
She will be speaking to Chairman Senator Bob Casey, Ranking Member Senator Mike Braun, and Senators Kirsten Gillibrand, Richard Blumenthal, Elizabeth Warren, Mark Kelly, Raphael Warnock, John Fetterman, Marco Rubio, JD Vance, Pete Ricketts, Tim Scott, and Rick Scott. The primary focus of her testimony will be the need to increase Direct Support Professional wages. While we have other legislative goals as an industry, this is the one which could be greatly impacted by the current legislation being discussed.
