The Coalition on Human Needs continues to report on the impact of the sequester. For example, its Friday edition included the following from Windham, N.H.:
The Windham Senior Center, which serves 1,100 seniors in Rockingham county a day, is figuring out how to best absorb its $81,000 budget cut as a result of the sequester. So far, the center has laid off one person.
"If we passed on the cut we got, we would have to tell six of you every Tuesday and Thursday to go someplace else. We're hoping to get the money back because, you know, which six of you?" Debra Perou, the executive director of the Rockingham Nutrition and Meals on Wheels Program Inc., said to a group of seniors at the center.
