Calling Upon the Social Services Department to Restore Much-Needed Funding for Substance Abuse Treatment Beds for Women in Recovery

CPS Making Strides, Although State Legislation Would Help Even More

The serious problem with CPS over the last several years is just heart-wrenching.  Reforms within this County department are ongoing and helpful, and together with reforms at the State level, will provide additional avenues to help our most vulnerable residents.  Joining her Democratic colleagues in supporting legislation currently before both houses of the State Legislature, Betty Jean Grant is hopeful that this legislation secures passage, as well as the signature of Gov. Cuomo, in order to become law.
