Sad News, CRSA Is No More

FROM OUR LAST BOARD MEETING

So many changes have happened over the last couple of years, the board voted to disband the organization. Anyone who has already paid their dues for 2019 will receive their money back.

This is sad for all of us, CRSA has played an important part in making changes for residential care, those we shared our homes and lives with, and for providers. Through our newsletter, we’ve kept our members informed about new regulations and changes.

Over the years we lobbied in Sacramento, were instrumental in making changes in regulations, and among the first to teach administrator classes and CEUs. When we were doing that we had a large membership and funds to finance all that we did.

We no longer have the funds or the manpower to continue.

We had a great 30 year run, and we are proud of our accomplishments.

We wish the best for you and your clients in the coming year.

The books will be audited and we plan to have a final meeting on January 24th at 9:30 a.m., at Ryan’s Place on Mooney Blvd. in Visalia. You are welcome to join us.
