CASE STUDY: Leah Feldstein's Office

EDUCARE, Inc. ▪ 1200 Stone Way, Suite 500 ▪ Seattle, Washington

Leah Feldstein returned to her office at a markedly slow pace. She had just come out of a meeting with EDUCARE's director, John Fiske, who had let her in on some very unsettling news. He confirmed the rumors that had been flying around that the U.S. Department of Education was planning to cut its funding to drug education and rehabilitation programs, and that an assessment team were on their way to the West Coast to determine which programs in the major cities should be cut and which ones saved. If EDUCARE were cut, there might be a loss of up to 25 percent of its funding. Such a cut, coupled with other likely cuts from the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services and the state of Washington, would effectively wipe out EDUCARE's funding. All that would be left would be money from private foundations and private donations, which currently accounted for only 23 percent of the budget.
