Impact of the Office of Behavioral Health Budget Cuts

Bridge House / Grace House will be affected by proposed Office of Behavioral Health FY 2012 budget cuts by the House Appropriations Committee. The $1.3M cut to the Metropolitan Human Services District will significantly impact our programs. As stated by Mental Health America of Louisiana,

“This budget transfers funding for intense community based treatment like ACT/FACT teams and residential treatment beds for addiction at Bridge House (22 beds for males) and Grace House (10 female beds). Absorbing the $1.3M reduction would result in the elimination of some if not all of these important services in the New Orleans area.”
