Bob Arnold, president and CEO of Family Centers, said the future of the agency's four preschools remains uncertain.

...
"We're now looking to raise additional dollars this year so we can fill that gap," said Arnold. "We're not sure yet what we're going to be able to do next year."
He said the agency has conducted a few pointed solicitations, but adding more fundraisers to make up the shortfall could be counterproductive.
"They take a fair amount of work and at a certain point in time, if you keep adding events, you could end up asking Peter to pay Paul," he said.
...
"We also have seen in the governor's budget that he's proposing further cuts to school-based health clinics as well as other programs, and it's not clear how it's going to play out," said Arnold.
Family Centers gets more than a third of its funding from the state, making it highly vulnerable to budget fluctuations.
"It's a pretty frightening environment," said Arnold.
...
As part of that effort, the agency has been "stepping up" its branding, said Arnold, by increasing its social media presence to engage new audiences.
...
"It could cause people to lose their jobs, their income, they could become homeless if they don't get the attention they need when they need it," said Arnold. "There are a lot of potentially dangerous and certainly negative outcomes if people don't get the services when they need them."
Arnold speculated the cause of the increased demand for services is two pronged: First, the country's economic recovery was weak at best, causing many people of low income to slip through the cracks. Second, on a more positive note, people are more aware of where to go when they need help than they used to be.
'A recalibration'
Family Centers is a multifaceted nonprofit, offering mental health services, education and independence counseling. But Arnold said the agency could be forced to revisit its priorities.
"We're going to have to calculate moving forward, with what's happening with state and government and private funding, how much we'll be able to continue to do. It's a recalibration," he said.
Not that making changes would be easy.
"There are great needs out there, lots of people experiencing traumas, people experiencing barriers in their lives that keep them from supporting themselves, from finding the work they want, from doing well in school," Arnold said.
...
Childhood services like preschools can help prevent some problems from forming and control the need for adolescent and adult human services in town, said Arnold.
Family Centers still needs $200,000 to fill the gap left by United Way's funding cut and continue the family scholarships it provides for its preschools, he said.
"We've faced difficult times before," said Arnold, "and what we've seen is people in our community are extremely generous, and when there are funding crises in the community, it really steps up and helps."
