ST. CLOUD – Yesterday, we told you the story of  the recent 90% funding cut for local emergency food and shelter services. This cut took this year’s amount of funding down from nearly $200,000 to 19,334.

These funds are used by local agencies like Anna Marie’s Alliance, an emergency shelter for abused women and children. They’ve historically received around $50,000 from the Emergency Food and Shelter Program.

Jacque French is the Director of Development for Anna Marie’s. She says these types of cuts severely affect staffing at the shelter.
