continued Alan Jones, ACAP executive director/CEO, hopes to find funding for the program to continue.
“Our initial goal is to find funding to keep the program open until the end of the school year while we look into options for the future,” he said.
That future appears very uncertain for the Moriah and Willsboro after-school program.
“At this time we do not know the future of the program and are asking everyone to advocate for the need for after-school programs,” Zmijewski said. “We are hopeful that OCFS (Office of Children and Family Services) will receive more funding, but in the meantime we feel the need for these programs is strong and will continue to look for ways to fund the program.”
