Program 1

OVERALL THE CURRENT TAX YEAR SHOWED DECLINES IN THE AMOUNT OF WORK DONE COMPARED TO LAST YEAR. GIVEN THE COVID-19 CRISIS THE SURPRISE IS THAT THE DROPS WERE NOT MORE SIGNIFICANT. IN TOTAL THERE WAS AN 8.9% REDUCTION IN PEOPLE SERVED AND A 20% DROP IN SERVICES PROVIDED. OUR 2 WEEK CLOSURE, THE COURT'S MONTH-LONG CLOSURE AND THE CONSTRAINTS OF TELE-HEALTH HAD A BIG IMPACT. IN MARCH AND APRIL THE WORKLOAD DROPPED BY OVER 30%. ALCOHOL AND DRUG TREATMENT REDUCED FROM 77 INDIVIDUALS TO 54 AND SERVICE CONTACTS DROPPED FROM 1,532 TO 903.

Expenses
$578,636
Revenue
$718,505

DRUG DIVERSION ACTUALLY WENT UP FROM 419 PEOPLE TO 436 WHILE CONTACTS WENT UP FROM 982 TO 1,268. WE EXPERIENCED A LARGE SURGE IN CASES AT THE END OF 2019 AND IT APPEARS TO HAVE INCREASED THE WORKLOAD ENOUGH TO AFFECT THE ANNUAL STATISTICS. HOWEVER, REFERRALS AND STATIC CASELOADS DROPPED TO ZERO AFTER THE LOCKDOWN. WHEN THE COURTS OPENED AT THE VERY END OF THE TAX YEAR WE SAW A NEW RUSH OF REFERRALS SO NEXT YEAR WILL BE INSTRUCTIVE.

Expenses
$104,146
Revenue
$52,176

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE WENT DOWN FROM 141 INDIVIDUALS TO 113 WITH CONTACTS GOING FROM 3,080 TO 2,166.

Expenses
$87,383
Revenue
$87,380
