Would you like to share an anecdote about how the economic downturn is impacting your organization and/or your organization’s clients?
We asked people to comment as they registered for the Town Hall. See comments below to read what service providers have said.
There has been a marked increase in substance abuse with youth and adults due to the economy, [creating] strain on families, loss of jobs, etc. Did any of the focus groups address this issue? In all prior economic times through history, this has occurred and the cost in society is huge -- the cost for nonprofits and on jails, etc.
