The CARE Act is a bill sponsored by Senator Steve O’Ban to help those who are incapable of caring for themselves…and are usually homeless or in jail as a result…because of a mental health or substance abuse disorder.
The CARE Act would create a pilot program for King, Pierce and Snohomish counties and will allow for the appointment of a Court Appointed Resource Executor (CARE) officer for those who can’t make decisions for their own care, and the CARE officer will see that the homeless individual gets the treatment that they need.
Will you make your voice heard on the CARE Act?
Add your voice to those supporting the CARE Act. Senator O’Ban will keep you informed on his efforts to get help for those who have been ignored and left homeless because their mental health and addiction disorders make them reject the services they desperately need.
