Sixty members of Maryhaven Center of Hope participated in the Alliance Rally outside Governor Cuomo’s Long Island Office in Hauppauge on Friday March 15th.

These cuts will have a catastrophic effect on Maryhaven and other OPWDD agencies. Maryhaven urges you to contact the Governor at his website www.governor.ny.gov or call his office at (518) 474-8390.
