SOPHIA's support, through attendance, is needed

posted Jul 21, 2014, 10:54 AM by Sophia Webmaster   [ updated Jul 21, 2014, 10:54 AM ]

When: 7 pm July 22 Tuesday

What: Waukesha County Board meeting
  • 7:10 P.M. - Presentation: Criminal Justice Collaborating Council (CJCC) Overview
    by CJCC Coordinator Rebecca Luczaj
  • 7:15 P.M. - Presentation: "Prescription Opiate and Heroin Epidemic in Waukesha County"
    by District Attorney Brad Schimel

Where: (Room 350 of the Waukesha County Courthouse)

Why: The CJCC directs many of the County's criminal justice programs including the Alcohol and Drug Treatment Courts. 2015 budgets for the treatment courts are being created. Already people are being turned away because of inadequate resources. Even if courts would be funded at current levels, services would most likely be cut. And the opiates problem gets worse!

SOPHIA support has made a significant impact in the past - we can make a difference!

See you there!
