This November 5th, Medina County voters will find a Human Services Levy on ballot. It would fund 3 agencies – the Office for Older Adults, Job & Family Services, and the Alcohol, Drug Addiction, & Mental Health Board – which seniors, children, and other at-risk folks rely on this 1.0 mill levy ($3/month per $100,000 home value) tackles growing critical human service needs in Medina County, which already exceed the state/federal funding that is unable to keep up. With the levy, we can expand meal programs for homebound seniors and improve senior transportation options; add JFS caseworkers to meet the needs of the foster care program, Child and Adult Protective Services, and elderly case management; and improve crisis and suicide prevention programs, recovery housing, and peer support programs. Without it, we face putting children or seniors in crisis on waiting lists, or turning them away completely. Cast your ballot and make sure your voice is heard – early voting starts on October 8th.
