Sea of Yellow
Hundreds of Teachers, Teacher Assistants and Parents (some with their kids in strollers) came to the Town Hall / Rally on June 25th


The Capacity Management (a/k/a, Vacancy Management) meetings for each of the NYC boroughs are the forum at which OPWDD and providers can match existing residential vacancies with people on the waiting list (the CRO).  In addition, providers can present and submit the necessary information for people for inclusion on the CRO. Click here for the schedule, location, and contact people.


The citywide AROC meeting held every 2-3 months is more focused on the systemic issues and allows OPWDD and provider staff to compare notes. For example, there is no prohibition against matching people in one borough with a vacant opportunity in another borough.
