What Remains the Same

Trump and Clinton at podiums during the campaignNew leadership in the White House and in Congress always means different ideas and viewpoints for how we conduct the country’s business. But an election doesn’t change the needs that regular people have. We know from experience that the challenges people face today are the very same challenges we faced yesterday, and won’t change because of an election.

A new administration means changes, and we are ready to work with policymakers to mitigate the impact of change on our constituency. We will be using all of the tools at our disposal to make sure that people with complex health needs and disabilities have a voice – whatever systems of care we put in place.

For the last 25 years, HDA has been breaking down social, economic, and structural barriers to health and well-being.

We value collaboration, and innovation. We will bring our expertise and our experience to the table. We respect the viewpoints of others, while balancing political agendas against the need of real people. We stand ready to work with all of you to collectively develop strategies for improving and preserving programs and services for disadvantaged populations.

Know that HDA stands ready to keep working. Stand with us.
