Adults With Disabilities Advocates To Rally At State Capitol

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

With time in the special session running out, a group of Oklahomans will be rallying Thursday morning at the Capitol in an effort to save their services.

DHS is one of the many organizations with state funding on the chopping block.

Department leaders said they may have to cut adult day services.

Families that depend on the state for these services are waiting for a budget breakthrough.

Many families will lose services like being able to receive care at the Oklahoma Foundation for the Disabled (OKFD).

OKFD is a nonprofit social services organization providing activity oriented adult day health services for people with developmental disabilities.

They are licensed by the Oklahoma State Department of Health and Department of Human Services, both of which may be threatened by budget cuts. 

According to the organization, many who benefit from the program qualify for state assistance.
