Philadelphia Safe and Sound will close up shop

From the Inquirer:

Philadelphia Safe and Sound, a decade-old city-funded nonprofit that manages truancy and teen violence programs to the tune of $54 million, has decided to dissolve itself.

The nonprofit's board of directors wrote Mayor Nutter a letter yesterday informing him that it voted Monday night to end all operations as of June 30.

"While it was an extremely painful decision to make, given the current environment, the board felt it was the only real option available," the letter stated.

The news is being delivered to the nonprofit's staff today.
We just got the email here at Ayuda. Our current budget includes $138,000 from Safe and Sound. So now we wait...
