Welcome to UCP Seguin

UCP Seguin of Greater Chicago is a charitable not-for-profit agency serving individuals with disabilities in metropolitan Chicago and beyond.

Last summer the Illinois General Assembly granted a 75-cent hourly wage increase after giving nothing to DSPs for nearly a decade. But the average starting pay for DSPs has only now reached above $10 - far less than wages paid by retailers, warehouses, and even fast food restaurants.

There are two bills - SB 3508 and HB 5622 - just filed in the Illinois General Assembly that would provide a long-overdue solution to the state's DSP staffing crisis by raising starting wages for DSPs to $13.50 in July 2018 (FY'19) and ramping up to $15 per hour in July 2020 (FY'21).

Please watch theydeservemore.com and your email for more updates and action steps. Please share your stories if you or a loved one have been impacted by low DSP wages.

Please maximize the power of your networks by sharing this updated fact sheet, the new They Deserve More website, and their Facebook and Twitter pages. We invite you to voice your support with the hashtag #TheyDeserveMore.
