The Marc Steiner Show

August 25, 2009 – Hour 2

Many programs that provide crucial services in Baltimore’s neediest and most dangerous neighborhoods are seeing their funding dry up. Organizations that work with children and help get gang members and former convicts off the street are concerned about what will happen to their neighborhoods if they can no longer run their programs.

Marc speaks with some of the people whose organizations face daunting budget cuts to find out what they need to keep doing their important work.

Our guests are:

Mama Rashida Forman-Bey – Program Director of WombWork Productions

Ted Sutton – Director of Sutton House

Dante Wilson – Director of Reclaiming Our Children & Community Project

Ray Cook – Director of On Our Shoulders

  1. I really struggled through this broadcast. I am concerned that these individuals are not emphasizing their own actions as it relates to funding. Funding was lost due to poor adminstrative practices. If you have to estimate your budget that is a red flag. You have to have accountability! Not completing paperwork is irresponsible and the consequence is loss of funding. Many of these programs want to run without any oversight and it does not work that way!
