Debbie Ferraro, Executive Director, and Gretchen Kelly, Compeer & Respite Director/Development Coordinator, visited Harrisburg on April 25 to meet with our local elected officials to advocate for a realistic mental health budget that directly impacts the children, adults, and families PLEA serves. This event, sponsored by Rehabilitation and Community Providers Association (RCPA), included a Capitol Day Rally for all attendees to show our legislators that these services are essential and must be supported.
