Photo by Chad McMillan. The Student Fees Ad visory Committee has recently designated $20,000 to the UH Attendant Care Services in order to keep the program alive. ACS provides 24-hour care for students with disabilities who require one-on- one care. "This program lets the student live an independent life, yet offers assistant when needed," said Karen Waldman, director of the center for students with disabilities. In addition to UH monies, ACS receives $1,000 a month for each student enrolled in the program from the Texas Rehabilitation Commission, Waldman said. "However, " she said, "this is not enough money to pay the employees who assist the students. Without the employees, there is no program," she said. Elwyn Lee, vice president of Student Affairs helped ACS receive approval for the 6D funds at a recent SFAC meeting by speaking on the merits of the program. "This program is pretty high on my list of priorities and I will do whatever I can to keep the program from folding," Lee said. "I know UH can be a university that is able to offer quality service to everyone." Waldman said the seven students could not attend UH without ACS. Rodger Peters, a longtime participant in the program, said UH has come a long way for students with disabilities. Before UH's program, the TRC employed outside agencies that were responsible for hiring the attendants, Peters said. "Some of the attendants... didn't care about us. They would leave us alone at night without any care available," Peters said. Because of complaints from students enrolled in the program, Waldman and former Vice President of Student Affairs Roland Smith formed ACS in February 1990, Peters said. Waldman said the current full-time attendants have been attendants for nine to ten years, while the part-time attendants are mostly foreign students who are required to work on campus because of their visa restrictions. Peters said, "Since the part-timers usually have no previous experience, we teach them how to care for us." Waldman said since the money allotted to ACS is a one-time occurrence, the future of the program will depend on the number of students requiring ACS, how much money is received from donations, and how much money can be raised through fund-raisers. "If the $20,000 runs out and we are still in deficit, then the TRC will once again be responsible for hiring the attendants," she said. - Stori Carpenter North Tower 5th Floor- Laura Saccomanno, Aimee Roberson, Jennifer Burditt, Amy Ciolli, Sherry Boyles, Elaine Huang, Ling-Hui Chang, Linda Saccomanno, Betsy Sherman.
