Governor Edwards has issued the call for a special session of the Louisiana Legislature to begin on February 19th. Please reach out to members of our state legislative delegation (contact information attached), especially your own senator and representative, and others you know or don’t know, to share this important message:
 
The proposed executive budget presented by Governor Edwards on January 22nd would significantly impact Volunteers of America’s Community Services in Louisiana.
Here’s how:
 
• Nearly 1,900 children and adults need our supports and assistance
• 570 hard working men and women employed by Volunteers of America would lose their jobs
• Heightened public health and public safety concerns for all of our families, friends and neighbors.
• Children in crisis disrupt classrooms and communities.
• Adults in crisis burden law enforcement and hospitals.
• Seniors need support to remain independent, in their homes.
 
Please consider these effects on your communities as you plan for the upcoming legislative session. Thank you.
