  1. The Community Choice Act should be promoted stronger by all of society. We are in the midst of a financial crisis and why would people not want to receive a stronger value of our tax dollars.

    One only needs to consider the cost comparison between placing folks in institutions vs providing IHSS. IHSS may cost $12,000 vs an institution for $50,000 or more (Both these figures are estimates.).

    But the real value in providing the Community Choice Act comes from the value received from the economy provided of the dollar turning over in your community three to four times from local investment.
