Dear Community Member,
Patchogue-Medford Youth & Community Services, Inc. is a not-for-profit agency that serves the diverse needs of the Patchogue and Medford communities through a comprehensive array of programs and services for youth, families and individuals. Through various government and foundation grants, we are able to offer all of our programs and services free of charge.
During these hard economic times we have seen an increase in the number of individuals served by our organization. With budget cuts for the upcoming year, PMYCS will be forced to eliminate some youth programs and reduce the number of clients that are provided services. This will be devastating to our clients, our staff and our community partners. Our center is a fundamental necessity for our community residents and in a time when more and more people are in need of services, cutting back will prove to be detrimental to our needy community members.
We are reaching out to businesses and generous individuals within the community to help us try to meet some of our rising demands. Our agency cannot continue to provide these services without the help of our neighbors. On behalf of our clients and our community, I ask you to consider assisting our agency by providing us with either a monetary donation or a contribution of goods or services.
Thank you in advance for your support.
Shawn Hirst, MSW
