State Senator Bill Haine and State Representative Dan Beiser are among the scheduled speakers at a rally planned for Monday morning at Senior Services Plus in Alton. The reason is the proposed cuts in Governor Bruce Rauner’s budget, and in particular the Community Care Program.

Established in 1979, the Community Care Program helps senior citizens, who might otherwise need nursing home care, to remain in their own homes by providing in-home and community-based services. Monday’s rally runs from 10-11:30am at the SSP Cafeteria.
