Miami Dade Budget Cuts Leave Needy Families to Fend for Themselves
Date:8/25/2009

5,622 Families will lose Much Needed services

MIAMI, Aug. 25 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Miami-Dade County Mayor Alvarez has eliminated all funding for community-based organizations (CBOs) for FY 2009-10, effective October 1, 2009. The proposed would mean the total elimination of over $31 million in grants to community-based organizations in Miami-Dade County. A significant portion of the CBO cuts would apply to Institute for Child & Family Health (ICFH) the largest provider of children's services in the County. ICFH uses the county funding to provide programs in mental health, juvenile justice, and prevention services to needy families.

"The grant funding we currently receive from the county provides services to 5,622 families in Miami-Dade County," said Robert D. Nolan, Ph.D., Executive Director for ICFH, "most of these children and families come from the working poor population who do not qualify for Medicaid and cannot afford private insurance, if these programs are cut they will have nowhere else to turn to for services."

Also at risk are 37 staff positions that oversee these programs. The service area that stands to lose the most funding and staff are the juvenile justice programs.

"Miami-Dade County currently runs one of the most innovative juvenile delinquency prevention programs in the nation," said Juan C. Gonzalez, Ph.D., Director of Programs and Services for ICFH, "just this month the Thailand Ministry of Defense visited our offices to learn more about our juvenile justice programs which has only a one-percent rate of juvenile re-offenders."

Community based organizations serve as the lifeline to our county's underserved community, these programs strengthen individuals, families and communities. Loss of these services will compound the problems that low-income families are facing.
