Group home crisis for developmentally disabled in WNY

Carolyn Simmons of Lockport loves her daughter Carrie.

Carrie is 39 years old now, she’s severely disabled both mentally and physically.

“Carrie is a wonderful daughter, she’s cooperative and she’s warm and loving, but she still needs someone with her, I just can’t go out. I’m here, her and I are here tonight,” says Carolyn.

Carrie goes to a daycare program during the week, she gets home at 3:30 p.m. and from there Carolyn, a single mom, cares for Carrie basically by herself.
