Oklahoma budget cuts are affecting services across the state, including a whopping $69 million in cuts to the Department of Human Services, which provides many services to children, disabled and developmentally challenged adults across the state.

Letters are already going out that tell recipients of Adult In-Home Support Waivers the program will no longer be funded after the end of this month, meaning recipients will find themselves having to make alternate plans. Numerous employees of home health, group homes and DHS will also likely lose their jobs.

Tomorrow, concerned citizens are planning to rally at Spaulding Park from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. to let legislators know they’re paying attention and will vote accordingly.

“This affects seniors and adult Oklahomans with disabilities,” William Elder, one of the rally’s organizers, said. “We will not let these services be cut for our most vulnerable citizens.”

The Rally to Save Oklahoma is free and open to the public.
