We are pleased to announce that Bailey-Boushay House funding for outpatient programs is included in the 2009-11 State Operating Budget, signed by Gov. Christine Gregoire on May 19.
"Many people worked very hard to make sure Bailey-Boushay was included in the new state budget," says Brian Knowles, Executive Director, Bailey-Boushay House. "Continued funding of the Bailey-Boushay outpatient programs is great news for our patients, staff and community. We still face some challenges, however, as funding for our inpatient programs will be reduced. We need the continued support of friends of BBH to help us meet any shortfalls."
Thank you to everyone who provided support by contacting their legislators to encourage them to keep Bailey-Boushay House funding in the state operating budget.
