GREENWICH — Staff and supporters of a Greenwich-based social service agency that helps people with developmental disabilities spent the first of six state-mandated furlough days rallying against state budget cuts. Some 200 people connected with Abilis swarmed Town Hall Wednesday morning to criticize a budget impasse that has temporarily cut 10 percent of the nonprofit’s operating expenses for its day and residential programs until a state spending plan is reached. The loss of what agency officials said was between $400,000 and $500,000 has forced Abilis — and many other of the state’s social service agencies — to close down for six days to stay within their spending limits.
