    hello… This is a general policy comment. I think Waiting Lists and registries for services — DD, MH, or even aging are a top policy item for siblings. We should be able to report a crisis/emergency and just because we take in a sibling for a short term in an emergency, that should not then be considered permanent housing that disqualifies them. We should create a policy statement that’s sibling specific on waiting lists… Including if siblings are out of state.
