County Budget Cuts Cause Severe Hardship for Local Organizations
If announced Countywide budget cuts are implemented, the Port Counseling Center will be forced to close its doors on the roughly one hundred people in need of alcohol and drug treatment it helps every year. Littig House will have to drop a very successful reading program, a Literacy Peers program, and rely primarily on volunteers to run an after-school program. And many of the Port Washington Youth Council's Teen Center programs and activities will be in jeopardy as well.
