The government shutdown; how does it affect agencies like the Family Justice Center? WSBT and WNDU spoke with FJC staff to find out.
How can YOU help?
1.Talk about it. Many people do not realize the ways that the shutdown has already affected services and resources for survivors and low-income families in their own communities.
2. Contact your representatives. Todd Young and Mike Braun are Indiana’s senators. Let them know how continuing to keep the government shut down is not only harming federal employees, but also potentially impacting non-profits and survivors in their state.
3. Donate to agencies like the FJC. Donations are used to provide necessary resources to clients and to continue providing hope-giving and life-saving services.
