July 22, 2013: Jamie and May Ross discuss Jamie’s job at St. Croix Industries, a program for disabled adults in New Richmond, WI.
On August 6, 2013, the St. Croix County board will decide if they will continue supporting SCI as they have for nearly 40 years, or if they move toward privatization. Many parents, workers, and clients are concerned that if SCI is no longer publicly funded then serious problems may result, including the potential that some adults with severe disabilities, such as Jamie, will be out of the program.
Stay tuned for the full interview coming soon.
