Monthly Comfort Allowance Increase is Off

Posted on Tue, Aug 9, 2011 at 12:32 PM

I am a mental health consumer and live in a Small Options group home. The Dexter gov't had promised a $15 monthly increase in comfort allowances in July. Now they switched their pitch and that increase now apparently only applies to persons living in their own apartments, not in group homes. I am not too pleased. —John
