Faced with a financial dilemma, Bruce Remme with Ability Building Center says we will have to take a hard look at our budget and take necessary action.
"Staff and volunteers and the community mean everything to us." said Remme.
"This is a people business. It takes funding, it takes dollars, but the key asset is our people. It's people that we serve and it's people that are here to serve that are being impacted."
The 7% cut is set to take effect on July 1st and solutions currently are limited.
"We reach out to them again and say 'is there anything we can do? Can you take a second look at this?' They're not talking to each other, there's not talk of a special session, but organizations like ABC are really dependent on their support here."
Only a special legislative session in the next 24 days can grant organizations helping people with disabilities the funds they're set to lose.
