poverty sucks

Gag. Poverty sucks. Maine is up for HUGE budget cuts in human services...some directly through the department of health and human services, but others from non-profits that get huge percentages of their funding from state contracts (called purchases services). So, when you read about the budget cuts you are looking at cuts to crucial Maine services like Family Planning, Assisted Living, Elder supports, Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault supports, and tons more.
