T.R.H.A. IS NOT POINTING ANY FINGERS
As we mention “the system” throughout this website we are referring to everyone that is involved or should be involved including consumers, providers, government agencies and last but not least, our elected officials. As citizens of the United States we are all tax paying constituents, and we are the people, that politicians have been elected to represent. As concerned citizens we all have the responsibility to vote for qualified candidates that will represent us as the people and be aware of our causes and support us in any way possible. So, we all have to make sure, that during the FLORIDA ELECTIONS we do our part and with due diligence vote for the right candidates. The Primary Election will be held on August 28, 2018 and the General Election will be held on Nov. 6, 2018. This year Florida has its biggest election in nearly a decade when voters will choose a new governor.

THE AGONY OF RESIDENTIAL HABILITATION PROVIDERS IN FLORIDA
Opening a Foster Home, or Group Home in Florida that provides Residential Habilitation services for people with disabilities, is a redundantly difficult task and brings many challenges. The lack of assistance that new and prospective providers receive is totally unacceptable. When there is an urgent need for services the system should find ways to safely streamline the procedures to make these services available to the consumers in need. There is no legitimate reason that it should take years for qualified individuals to become providers or take years to open a licensed facility.
From my personal experience I can describe in detail the physiological torture and the unnecessary financial burdens of what I had to endure in order to become a Residential Habilitation provider, not to mention all of the obstacles that I had to overcome to get the facility licensed, but I’m sure this would take too long, so I will leave this for another article. As Residential Habilitation providers most of us have concerns about the many of the flaws in the current system that seem to be creating unnecessary problems and delays for providers and are in serious need to be addressed.
