Dear Friends,

The Comptroller's office just notified Family Focus that it is releasing enough of our payments to avoid the immediate layoffs announced earlier this week.

We are grateful to the state Comptroller's office for the ability to keep our staff working and for our centers to continue providing critical programming in the Chicago region. We appreciate the overwhelming support and advocacy we received as we address the financial challenges the human services sector in Illinois is facing.

Warm regards, and thank you for your support. 

Merri Ex
President and CEO
