Governor Tomblin has proposed budget cuts to vital programs for children and families including child abuse prevention, domestic violence, home visiting programs, and family support. #ourchildrenourbudget

Please contact your legislators and the Governor and ask them to reject these proposed budget cuts!

The governor's proposed budget leaves many of our families out in the cold.

  • 8.5% cuts to Family Resource Networks and Starting Points Family Resource Centers; even though these programs leverage more than $5 for every $1 the state invests.  
  • 25% cuts to In-Home Family Education Home-visiting Programs; even though this program saves money through prevention and helping vulnerable new parents succeed.
  • 26% cuts to child abuse prevention funds through the WV Children's Trust Fund,
  • 14% cuts to Domestic Violence shelters,
  • 7.4% cuts to Child Advocacy Centers who serve sexual abuse victims.
