Testimony: B23-203: The Close Relative Caregivers Subsidies Amendment Act of 2019

April 24, 2019

Children's Law Center attorney Aubrey Edwards-Luce recently shared her testimony about B23-203: The Close Relative Caregivers Subsidies Amendment Act of 2019 with the Committee on Human Services. She testified because attorneys in CLC’s Healthy Together Program represent parents and relative caregivers who have custody of minor children in housing conditions and special education matters. Pediatricians refer clients to our Healthy Together attorneys so that the attorneys can fight to remediate housing concerns in children’s homes while the caregivers can focus on the children’s education and development. Over our 23 years of advocacy, we have served hundreds of adult relative caregivers through our Healthy Together Program. The insight of these attorneys demonstrate the positive impact that B23-203 could have for children and their relative caregivers. That's why Aubrey testified in favor of the legislation.
