The current economic situation is extremely troubling. High unemployment rates, large deficits and cuts in government support for vital programs is the current state of affairs. Simultaneously, more people are contacting us for assistance and services.
Additionally, Hurricane Irene left many people with extensive damages to their homes and businesses. Our building in Amsterdam was damaged as well. Despite the economy and the effects of natural disasters, the Board and Staff of RCIL stay committed to improving and expanding services. The Amsterdam site was quickly repaired and innovative plans for the future of RCIL are being developed.
Rather than retrench, we are busy developing aspirational goals for the future. While budgets are being cut at the state and national levels, we continue to develop and promote programs that are individualized, directed by people who receive them, and increase opportunities for reaching greater potential while significantly reducing costs. If you would like additional information about RCIL and what it does, please feel free to contact me directly.
We appreciate your support, but we need your involvement.
