State Budget Cuts

As the dust begins to settle on the state budget we will soon have some idea of how state and county funding for services in the community faired. It wasn’t looking good for anyone and I expect that there will be big losers across the state. There will be a greater need for those very same services and more calls to The Arc and other community service providers. With budget cuts of the magnitude being made in this state, there will likely be more layoffs and more program closures. People with disabilities and their families will need our support more than ever. I do not know the totality of cuts to our funding as of yet, but The Arc of KC and its board is committed and willing to sustain as best we can our core services. I know we will get through this together. If you are interested in helping out during these lean times – do check out our Get Involved or Donate section on the web site.
