  26. 26. In addition to state budgetreductions, significant numbers ofagencies also are dealing withmonetary reductions at the federallevel. 49% of organizations that received less federal funding in FEDERAL 2012 compared to 2011 IMPACTS 26
  27. 27. IMPACTS OF SEQUESTRATIONA partial listing of state programs that could be impacted anddollar amounts, include: $43 million from Title I (education fund for poor kids); $33 million from Special Education; $19 million from WIC; $5.3 million from social services; $1 million from early intervention; and $2 million from community service block grants 27
  28. 28. LACKAWANNA COUNT Y IMPACT We are scrambling to replace lost private funding for a variety of services we of fer. Child care numbers are decreasing because clients are having trouble af fording due to less subsidies. What I foresee is a vicious cycle. The donors have less to give, and the state has less to give. Therefore making it harder on nonprofits to provide services for the lower income population and making it harder to put a break in a generational life cycle. My concern is that we are creating generational poverty, by not providing the resources for our youth to be in a position to have a better life than their parents Our agency is doing more with less funding from the State. We are using our own funds to "rob Peter to pay Paul". 28
  29. 29. STATEWIDE IMPACT We have closed several programs, laid of f staf f, and restructured services, there are longer waiting lists for services except crisis services where we can never have a „waiting list‟ We are not able to serve as many youth and single mothers and other individuals because of staf f and operational resources. We have to be much more creative and better stewards of all resources. Human services is a process where we help people to empower themselves to become more self - suf ficient. 29
  30. 30. STATEWIDE IMPACT Homeless shelters have cut hours. Mothers with children have to leave the shelter during the day. Most have nowhere to go but hang out on the street until the shelter opens up in the evening. We are a safe place for our members to be and we can longer provide that on evenings and weekends as we did in the past. This adds to isolation and depression and need for crisis intervention services. Public housing residents who have lost their General Assistance benefit moved out of public housing, presumably to a state of homelessness, due to lack of funds to pay the minimum rent requirement 30
