Biden administration grants automatic student loan forgiveness to 323,000 permanently disabled borrowers

Federal student loan borrowers with total and permanent disabilities received welcome news last week. The U.S. Department of Education announced that 323,000 federal student loan borrowers would receive $5.8 billion in discharges of student loan debt. The student loans will be automatically canceled under the Total and Permanent Disability Program. Previously, to get student loans forgiven under the program, borrowers had to submit a formal application, which can be challenging for those facing serious health issues, and many borrowers may not even realize they qualify. Working with the Social Security Administration to determine the eligibility of individual borrowers, the Department of Education has now automated the process for these 323,000 borrowers. Learn more here: https://www.washingtonpost.com/education/2021/08/19/disability-student-debt-forgiveness/

The Education Department will grant borrowers who are severely disabled automatic federal student loan forgiveness, rather than requiring them to fill out paperwork for a benefit provided by law.

Thank You United Way from GiveABQ

We are happy to say we are receiving a generous grant from United Way of Central New Mexico that will help our GiveABQ program provide furniture to families who are getting back on their feet after experiencing homelessness, domestic abuse, or other unhoused situations. Items such as kitchen tables where families can eat or kids can do homework, or a sofa to nap on are so important in setting up stable house. GiveABQ provides these items working in cooperation with other nonprofits. This grant will truly help local people in need and we at Adelante greatly appreciate it. ♥️

Like so many people during the pandemic, Adelante has been remodeling some of our locations. For example, we just did some upgrades at one of our community living homes, changing out the swamp cooler for refrigerated air to help keep our clients cool and breathing easier. The home also needed updates to the bathroom which had a big built-in in the shower area. Now, it offers better drainage and it is accessible to a Hoyer lift while still being sturdy and safe. These were done at the same time to lessen the disruption for our clients and our staff members, too.

It’s always a pleasure to say thank you to our great staff and this week we got to celebrate another 20 year Adelante team member. (21 actually, but her party was delayed due to the pandemic) Amy Montoya is our lead HR person in Valencia County and an amazing person.

As many of our supporters know, we choose a word for each person who reaches the 20 year milestone. Amy's is "attract" and here's what her plaque says:

Amy is a savvy HR professional who uses her recruiting skills to attract the best people to Adelante. She makes sure that everyone understands the essence of our organization – our clients – as well as our mission in the community. She works hard to find just the right employees to fit in with the staff and clients at different sites. Amy is often the first person people meet when they join our Valencia County team. Her friendly, supportive nature is infectious. Her compassion shines through in the staff meetings she hosts and even when she’s helping to resolve tough issues. Amy embodies the amazing spirit of Adelante which, in turn, engages others to care and support our work, too.

Congrats, Amy! And cheers to another 20 years. (Or until you move into our senior assisted living home, as you joked yesterday!)

Did the Bargain Square thrift store close for good?
So Many Good People at Adelante feel bad for them because mid management and upper management have an agenda!!
New Mexico Aids Services, now falls under the Adelante blanket. After completing a 6week personal management group, which was had a $100 stipend attached to it. Well?? We're now waiting up to 2 weeks 2 receive our stipend.. We live disability check 2 disability check! That money was earned and needed, not wanted! It's really sad, New Mexico Aids Services used 2b such Respectable non-profit! 1st It was r***d n pivelaged by it's board of directors. And? Now we have Corporate America, misappropriating our funds!The Saddest part of this is, the Poz People who move 2 are our state? Aren't going 2 find services, when looking here!
Art is another great way that people with disabilities express themselves and our direct support team supports those efforts as well. We thought this was a great way to end the official DSP Appreciation Week. Have a great weekend.
Watch and learn about the work Direct Support Professionals are doing at Adelante Mailing & Fulfillment Center and Adelante Document Destruction. This work is not as much about caregiving at worksites as it is about supporting and training people to be successful in that employment environment. Thank you to our DSPs who do that, this week and all year long. #DSPRW19 #disabilityemployment

Direct support professionals are people who work directly with seniors or people with disabilities in their homes, at work, and in the community to support their lives and goals. This work is incredibly important to our organization and our community, and growing even more essential as our population ages. Though we appreciate these amazing people all year long, September 8-14 is a national week celebrating Direct Support Professionals. Please join us in celebrating by pausing to thank the people who support your loved ones at Adelante or wherever they receive care. Notes, cards, small gifts or even just a heartfelt thank you would be appreciated. You can also watch and share our videos and pictures to help raise awareness about what a direct support professional is and the need for people to do this work today and in the future. Have a good weekend and we look forward to next week's celebrations.
