We have learned that all Secure Crisis Residential Centers, including Daybreak's Spokane location, will be cut by another 55%, amounting to a 70% cut over the last 2 years.  This second cut will cause this program to close.  We have only one week to try to save this program.  SCRC is a necessary program for Spokane that provides safety and counseling to 300+ youth who have run away from home and are in dangerous, unsafe situationsThis is a public safety issue!  SCRC is the only secure, safe place Law Enforcement can legally take runaway youth who are in dangerous situations.  If this program closes, there will be no place to take these children.

The State has funded this program in the past, supporting Daybreak with $270,000 per year to provide this service.  We cannot sustain this program if these state funds are eliminated. 

**Please find attached 5 simple ‘writing points' about the SCRC and Spokane's need for it in our community, along with names of the legislators and their email addresses.  Phone calls are also welcome (phone numbers attached).
