DRW raising funds – please give details

I received an email today from David Carlson by way of Disability Rights Washington.

The letter comes on the heels of another report they just published regarding the issues at Rainier School – a state-operated residential habilitation center (RHC).

Stand with DRW. Let’s work together to stop abuse. Make a donation today.Washington must invest in smarter and safer supports for people with disabilities.

DRW fund raising for abuse

 

It is a well-known fact that DRW is against any type of congregate care – regardless if it’s a person’s choice or not and personally I would question what the real motive is behind this fundraising campaign.  What are the goals and for what purpose?  The plea is quite vague.

Is this a general donation to DRW or are the funds going to be earmarked for more community supports, training and caregiving staff to provide more appropriate care to those at Rainier?

I have asked these questions to DRW but I have not received an answer.  Since they block me from participating on their social media pages I have little hope of the question actually being heard and less of it being answered.  Maybe someone else would have better luck.

Please let me know if you find out any information on this fundraising campaign.
