Dear <Legislator Name>

I am writing in support of SB 704 and HB 1564, which would create a Support Service Provider Program (SSP) for individuals who are DeafBlind in Texas. SSPs provide DeafBlind individuals who do not have guardians with the opportunity to lead empowered and independent lives and be contributing members of society. (https://txssp.info).

<Optional: Add a personal story or reason why you support this cause>

It would be great to have your support for this important legislation. Thank you for your time.
