HCO’s August Update:
The appeal for an emergency injunction was denied by the Judge, in part because she determined that providers must pursue state administrative remedies before seeking extraordinary relief. HCO will use the administrative appeal process to contest the 7% cut.
Rate cuts, along with the staffing shortage and the increased number of unfunded mandates have had a huge impact on services. For the past five years, HCO has shouldered the brunt of these expenses. HCO teams are diligently working to develop modified service plans to maintain unit-based programming. This will impact the minimum length of shifts or the need to come to licensed sites for services.
We hope that by making these modifications, we will be able to mitigate the effect of the 7% cut and other issues to continue to provide quality services to the individuals we support.

The Little Mermaid cast list is complete! Thank you to everyone who took the time to try out for this year’s musical! Casting decisions were difficult this year due to the incredible talent that came through our doors. If you do not find yourself on this list, we hope you will consider participating in other ways, be it as an usher or backstage volunteer, and please return to audition next year. Each show brings it own unique casting needs.
Please note that some of the sailors, maids, chefs and gulls may be added to the chorus numbers.
