What We Need - Bailey

May 14, 2020

My name is Bailey, and I am a person with a disability. I am from Mount Pleasant, Iowa. The Covid-19 emergency has cancelled a lot of activities for me. I didn't get to enjoy my basketball game against the police department. I don't get to go to CIP. I can't see my friends or my boyfriend. I haven't seen my family. I miss going to my day hab. I can't leave the house to go. I miss going to work and I don't get paid anymore. I want this virus to go away so I can go to back to work. I can't get out of the house to do my grocery shopping. My staff shops for me but I am only able to get things I need because I don't have a lot of money. I need to get back to work so I have money to buy food. I have stopped drinking pop to save money. I want this virus to go away so I can get back to my normal life again. I am sad that I am stuck at home and don't get to go out into the community. I hope that this virus goes away so I can have a party for my birthday.

I know you are working on the fourth relief package for COVID-19. I want to learn more about how you are going to help people with disabilities in this package. Thank you very much for your time.
