Restore funding for human services

Effective July 6, 2012, Nassau County has terminated all County funded youth and
family services and have made dramatic reductions to drug treatment
programs.  This decision was made in spite of the fact that these
neighborhood based programs serve well over 50,000 people in our
county.  Programs and services have now been eliminated and some agency doors have closed.  The children and families of this county need your voices more than ever before.

It is irresponsible for elected officials to allow programs and
agencies to shut their doors and deny our most vulnerable residents
vital services during times of their greatest need.  This decision
must be reversed immediately.  Our legislators were elected to serve
all of their constituents, particularly those in greatest need, and it
is every one's responsibility to ensure that they do nothing less.

Please join us in this effort and let our government officials hear
loud and clear that the future of our county lies in the hands of the
voters.  Children and healthy families are the future and strength of
this county...with your signature, we will send this message to those
who may have forgotten.
