This is an important message to the citizens of Licking County. The more than 3,000 abused and neglected children in Licking County need our help!
On November 4th, please Keep Caring and join me in supporting our community’s abused and neglected children by voting YES on the Children Services Replacement Levy. As a replacement levy, this is not a new tax; it generates funds to provide foster care and treatment services for Licking County’s most vulnerable children.
As chair of the Replacement Levy Committee, I can attest to the need for the funds generated bye the levy.
Just last year, Licking County Children Services worked with more than 3,000 children from the 1,937 reports of child abuse or neglect it received. Over 500 of the children from those cases were placed in protective foster care or treatment settings. Levy funds are used directly to cover the cost of the children’s foster care and treatment.
YOU can help provide the essential level of care our children need. Please VOTE YES to support the Children Services Replacement Levy and help our Licking County children.
C. Daniel DeLawder
Replacement Levy Committee Chair
