Happy New Year! I think that we can look forward to a lot of potential positive change in 2014:
- New hope for people coming back to our communities from prison as community correctional partnerships work to create systems of re-entry supports and services.
- Record level mental health funds in last year’s State budget that should show up in local services.
- A reported reduction in California’s foster care population – a trend to continue.
- And last, but certainly not least, potential changes as the Affordable Health Care Act continues to be implemented.
