Minnesota Representative Learns About The Phoenix Residence

Rep. Fischer visited with individuals and staff from Lydia House.

The Phoenix Residence welcomed Rep. Peter Fischer to their Lydia House this week. After a tour of the home, he visited with staff and people we support on why supporting community-based services is critical for people with disabilities and how they benefit our communities. Rep. Fischer strongly agreed we need to find other funding sources to increase the minimum wage for our Direct Support Professionals, and he’s “committed and has a passion for fixing this problem.”

This was Rep. Fischer’s first visit to The Phoenix Residence group homes as representative of District 43A. As a member of the Health and Human Services Finance Committee, Fischer agreed to work hard on behalf of organizations like ours. Thank you Rep. Fischer for visiting us!
