NEW YORK — Mayor Bloomberg’s preliminary budget for 2013 would cut more than $118 million in services for children and families, including health services, homeless youth services, and the elimination of seven Beacon community programs. The preliminary budget also fails to provide funds for more than 40,000 child care and after-school slots.

At its upcoming general meeting, Brooklyn’s Community Board 2 will consider a resolution supporting the “Campaign for Children,” opposing these cuts. The Citizens’ Committee for Children, one of the sponsors of the campaign, presented to the youth committee on March 28.

The general meeting takes place on Wednesday, April 11 at 6 p.m.  The meeting will be held at St. Francis College, Founders Hall (the auditorium), 180 Remsen St., between Clinton and Court streets in Brooklyn Heights. Details of the cuts to children’s services can be found here.
