This will be a rare opportunity for families to meet directly with Director Casey to share their experiences/concerns in their efforts to obtain services. It will also be an opportunity for families and individual’s to share with each other the creative ways they are using their Home Base and CILA Funding.
The Ligas Family Advocates (LFA’s) team are here to help you connect with other families and inform you about additional options through the Ligas Family Advocate Program.
- Have you heard about the Ligas Consent Degree and want to know what it is all about?
- Are you a Ligas class member who recently received a letter stating you are eligible to apply for services and you want to know ALL the options available to you and your family?
- Have you been approved for funding and not sure what options are available for you/your loved one? Laura Miller, attorney Equip for Equality, will answer questions about the Ligas lawsuit.
