The Bring it Home Coalition has
updated this letter because the Governor's team is currently working on the Executive State Budget for 2020/2021 as you read this message.
During this time, the Governor is making decisions on where funding for the next state budget will be allocated and it would be difficult to get the legislature to fund these essential higher than his Executive Proposal. That's why it is IMPERATIVE that we continue to remind him that funding mental health housing programs adequately is CRITICAL to the RECOVERY of so many New Yorkers.
Bring it Home is a coalition of community-based mental health housing providers, mental health advocates, faith leaders, and consumers and their families, urging New York State to adequately fund these community-based housing programs for individuals with psychiatric disabilities. Full recovery and community reintegration depends on stable housing opportunities. Through education and advocacy, Bring it Home is working to bring Better Funding for Better Care to New York.
