Richard Buery, Children’s Aid Society President and CEO, Addresses New York City Budget
New York, NY – “We commend Speaker Quinn and the City Council and Mayor Bloomberg for restoring proposed budget cuts to vital programs for children and working families, including early childhood and after-school programs. These programs set children up for success in school and support thousands of low-income families, who count on them to provide safe and supportive care so parents can work. We call on the next administration to prioritize early childhood and after-school programs by fully funding them as part of future budgets.”
