Human Service providers and clients talk about their budget priorities
Three people who work with survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence; a mother whose son is currently in the juvenile justice system, an agency that works with people facing eviction. Those speakers were part of the 22 people who came to Bellevue City Hall Oct. 14 to discuss the Executive-Proposed 2015-2016 County Budget.
Stacy Bacon (photo) is a single mother whose son is young offender. She spoke to the members and the audience about the importance offender services and intervention programs available through programs supported by the County have in the life of her son and family.
Representatives of the King County Sexual Assault Resource Center (KCSARC), Teamchild, which helps keeps young offenders out of the adult justice system, and public health providers that assist young mothers and their children also spoke about the budget and the impact the funding they receive has on the lives of the clients.
