Massachusetts settles lawsuit over rates for human service providers

"I think this settlement will be widely heralded by our provider community as an important victory not only for the community-based organizations that will be affected by it, but more importantly for the clients and the consumers who will undoubtedly receive a different level of services than they have before," said Michael Weekes, president and CEO of the Providers' Council, an umbrella organization representing human service providers.

Weekes said the extra money will help reduce turnover in the industry and help human service agencies compete for better workers, since workers will be better compensated. It will also help organizations strengthen their financial positions and improve programs and facilities.
