In late June, an agreement was reached on the 2020-21 State Budget by Governor Newsom, Senate President Atkins, and Assembly Speaker Rendon.
They agreed to keep CBAS (Community-Based Adult Services) and many other senior services funded. CBAS is the program operating at the Avenidas Rose Kleiner Center (ARKC).
Many of our participants, families, and advocates wrote letters of support and made calls throughout the months of May and June. Thank you all for your efforts!
If you’d like to thank the legislators who signed the May 28th letter in support of CBAS, CAADS has compiled a list of them with their Twitter handles and associated facilities.
ARKC continues to provide remote services and is taking new enrollees at this time. Please visit avenidas.org/care or contact Emily Nagaonkar at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information on current offerings.
