Every day, thousands of people throughout New York receive vital human services from nonprofits in their communities. You, your children, your family, friends, and neighbors may be among them. Human services are not only lifelines for people in need; they improve the quality of life for all of us.
But to close soaring State and local government budget deficits, our lawmakers will have very difficult choices to make in the weeks and months to come.
"Who Cares? I Do." is a statewide campaign that seeks to protect all of us from losing services that are essential to the well-being of real people in our communities.
We understand that difficult choices must be made and — as always — we will do our part. We urge government to preserve programs that are desperately needed, especially during the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. Any one of us may find ourselves in need of human services due to unexpected loss of a job, catastrophic illness, natural or man-made disaster, or other life circumstance.
