Children’s Aid Society President Reacts to Mayor’s Out of School Budget Cuts
Richard Buery, Children’s Aid Society President and CEO:
“The Mayor’s cuts to after-school programs sadly continues a multi-year trend of cutting programs for the children in our City that need them most,” said The Children’s Aid Society President and CEO Richard Buery. “After-school program slots have already dropped from 85,000 to 27,000 in the past three years alone. These programs keep our neediest kids on track for college graduation—the one sure pathway out of poverty. We, at Children’s Aid, are committed to working with our government, nonprofit and corporate partners to restore this critical funding.”
