Sunday October 16, 2016 Children's Sabbath Weekend

Churches in Monroe County, NY are urged to encourage the signing of letters advocating for child care subsidies for working parents. Since 2011 thousands of eligible parents have lost or denied this state recommended benefit. The local interfaith collaborative has successfully advocated and received additional state funds. Unfortunately each increase has been met by additional cuts in county support.

There is a direct relationship with the increase in poverty and the decrease in subsidy supports. See the Children's Sabbath Weekend for more background information. Click Here

See pdf attachment for letter to be signed.  Signed letters can be returned to or picked up by ABCRGR office.  Download Letter
